National Cyber Security Program of Taiwan (2021 to 2024)
In the current digital age, information and communication technology has long been integrated into various aspects of daily life, such as Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and 5th generation (5G) mobile networks and other technologies. While we enjoy the convenience of technology, there have also been various kinds of cyber security threats, such as Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) attacks, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, and Critical Infrastructure (CI) hacking, and so on. Undoubtedly, cyber security holds a significant impact on national security, public interest, national life, or economic activities. It is indeed necessary to enhance the national security protection capacity and strengthen the security and resilience of basic communication networks.
Since there is a wide application of information and communication services; cyber security plays a key role in our national security and even the aspects of the social-economic application with technology innovation policies, to respond to international trends and emerging types of cyber security attacks and threats, we will continue to develop our cyber security protection capabilities and advantages on the existing basis and aspects of defense. Besides implementing the fifth phase of the National Cyber Security Program of Taiwan (2017-2020), to gradually enhance our cyber security protection capabilities, the National Information & Communication Security Taskforce (hereinafter referred to as the NICST) of Executive Yuan proposed the "National Cyber Security Program of Taiwan (2021-2024)" (hereinafter referred to as NCSP) as the reference guide for promoting our cyber security protection strategy and plan.

National Strategy for Cybersecurity Development Program (2017-2020)
Recently, the digital economy has led industry to move toward cross-regional areas, virtual and real worlds, etc., which will push global industries to transform their scales. With the arrival of the digital economy and the Internet of Things (IoT), the Executive Yuan developed the “Digital Nation and Innovative Economic Development Plan (2017-2025)” (abbreviated as DiGi+) proposal to construct a thorough industrial ecosystem, speed up industries’ innovation, and optimize industrial structure. The next stage of the National Cyber Security Program has to start from the perspective of cyber security in order to secure the country’s digital safety. Therefore, three DiGi+ strategies like “Friendly regulation environment”, “Cross-domain digital talents”, and “Advanced digital technology” were presented as supporting approaches for the foundation of a digital country that can provide a safe and reliable “basic digital innovation environment” and a “digital government in cyber society”.
As mentioned above, NICST proposed the “National Cyber Security Program of Taiwan (2017-2020)” (abbreviated as NCSP), a prospective upstream policy for national cyber security with mega views. In response to our unique political and economic situation and increasingly complicated global information and communication changes, the Program will become an important reference for government agencies to develop further strategic plans for national cyber security protection.
