Google and CSA Forge Partnership to Enhance Cybersecurity in Asia-Pacific Region

Cybersecurity in the Asia-Pacific region is going to be improved due to a partnership that has been formed between Google and CSA. The partnership is centered on four primary pillars, which are the sharing of threat intelligence, joint operations, technical collaboration, and ecosystem development. Google Cloud and Mandiant, both of which are providers of security services, will collaborate to share information regarding malicious activities, incidents, and vulnerabilities together. Additionally, the partnership will involve the repository of threat telemetry that is maintained by CSA. This will enable both partners to effectively prevent, detect, and respond to threats such as ransomware attacks and scams.

Collaboration Between CSA and Google

For the Asia-Pacific region, the average dwell time in 2022 was 33 days, which was an increase from the 21 days recorded in 2021. When it comes to protecting critical infrastructure from cyber attacks, governments have a responsibility to implement the highest level of security possible in order to avoid the loss of services, resources, time, and money. CSA and Google will work together to take down digital assets that are used in cyberattacks and digitally enabled scams. They will also collaborate and facilitate joint investigations into cyber incidents that have the potential to have ramifications for critical infrastructure and systems. It is necessary to provide cybersecurity professionals with the most recent innovations and strategies in order to combat cybercrime, as the landscape of cyber security is constantly evolving and changing.

Enhance Cybersecurity Education and Collaboration

Earlier this year, Google announced that it would be providing 5,000 Google Cybersecurity Certificate scholarships with CSA to up to one hundred businesses at no cost. Google and the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) will further commit to enhancing the technical expertise of their respective engineering teams and exploring avenues to jointly develop and promote technical standards and best practices in the areas of trust and safety. Two specific initiatives launching at Singapore International Cybersecurity Week 2023 include the Cloud Security Companion Guides and the CSA-Google hosted Scams and Security Seminar. David Koh, Chief Executive of CSA, believes that cyber defense is a team effort, and Google is proud to deepen its commitment to building greater cyber resilience in Singapore through joint expertise and threat information sharing.
