The countries acknowledged that the promotion of international voluntary cyber norms of responsible State behavior is important for cultivating trust and confidence and the eventual development of a rules-based cyberspace.

They shared the vision of a peaceful, secure and resilient regional cyberspace that serves as an enabler of economic progress, enhanced regional connectivity and betterment of living standards for all.

In 2018, ASEAN member states issued ASEAN leaders’ statement on cybersecurity cooperation in which they realized the need for ASEAN to speak with a united voice at international discussions aimed at developing international policy and capacity building frameworks with regard to cybersecurity.

Accordingly, relevant ASEAN ministers closely considered and submitted recommendations on feasible options of coordinating cybersecurity policy, diplomacy, cooperation, technical and capacity building efforts among various platforms.

Cybersecurity has become more important in recent years as countries have increasingly embarked on journeys of digital transformation.

The speed of digitalization has only accelerated further since the Covid-19 pandemic, resulting in greater reliance on the digital realm for how people live, work, and interact, requiring more cooperation in cybersecurity.
