Cybersecurity firms up as priority with new digital laws
The coming year is expected to be the year of cybersecurity for Thailand with the likely introduction of key digital laws, especially the Cybersecurity Act, to take effect in 2019.
Paiboon Amonpinyokeat, of the National Cyber Security preparation committee and a cyber law expert, said that 2019 is expected to see active moves in cybersecurity, with the Cybersecurity Act expected to effect in 2019. This will encourage investments in cybersecurity and ventures by startups in Thailand. “All cybersecurity bills are expected to be effective before the election, so it should be effective by February,” said Paiboon.
