State of the Art, Cybersecurity Law, ASEAN


This paper objective was to investigate the state of the art of Cybersecurity Law in ASEAN by using documentary research for data analysis. The findings found that there were three Laws or Acts for cybersecurity in Thailand, Singapore, and Vietnam. The laws had five outstanding differences in details as follows: policy goals, involved agencies, strata of cybersecurity threats, cybersecurity maintenance, and penalty provision. In addition, there were three issues on the implementation of cybersecurity law-balance between cybersecurity and access; controlling of data, information, and knowledge; and direct effect of a set of classical factors of public policy implementation on the success of cybersecurity policy.
