Cyber Security Readiness in Thailand’s Critical Infrastructure

Building resiliency to ensure operations and businesses continuity of critical infrastructure

The COVID-19 pandemic exposes businesses to cyber-attacks and data breaches, and bad cyber actors exploit working models in the new normal where many businesses and employees operate remotely.

Security is one of the three major aspects of the Thailand 4.0 plan along with wealth and sustainability. The Thai government is deeply concerned and strongly encourages businesses to alter their Cyber Security strategies to deploy more rigorous security measures.

This has prompted CEOs and business leaders to invest in critical technologies, provide employees with cyber threat training, upskill cyber professionals, and test response plans to foil cybercriminals.

The Cyber Security Act B.E. 2562 (A.D. 2019) aims to impose legislative measures to ensure cyberspace security, and in particular, establishes a Cyber Security risk assessment framework to mitigate Cyber Security threats that could jeopardise the stability of operational businesses and national security. Furthermore, in terms of external security concerns, the act pushes enterprises to invest in Cyber Security measures to protect themselves from cyber-attacks.

Greater efficiency is a given when automated wireless cyber-physical systems with fewer human touchpoints become more common. These systems, however, are more vulnerable to cyberattacks. As such, Cyber Security has now evolved into the enabler that allows businesses to benefit from the speed, scalability, and resilience of digital transformation.

Companies must set aside funds for Cyber Security to ensure that they can prevent, detect, respond to, and recover from the ever-increasing and unprecedented threats that can strike at any time. They must also raise cybersecurity awareness throughout the organisation so that everyone understands that it is a problem that requires everyone's attention.

Factors to consider for enhancing security posture and maintaining cyber hygiene

Detecting vulnerable weaknesses and suspicious presence in sophisticated mission critical systems and networks may be a difficult security challenge. This is compounded by the shifting changes in the dynamic & evolving space of industrial Cyber Security for critical infrastructure.

The rapidly evolving cyber threat and vulnerability landscape

The landscape is not just active, but the diversity of threats and vulnerabilities reported is concerning. It's critical to understand the bad actors and the evolving strategies they deploy in order to know what we're up against and what to watch for.

New age requirements for critical infrastructure and what technologies are rising to the need

Given that brownfield old critical infrastructure is being replaced by greenfield new generation smarter components, it is necessary to comprehend how intertwined OT and IIoT are, and therefore what the combined new age requirements are.

Shifting Trends in the Cyber Security Frameworks, Standards and Assessments

Adopting a checklist, checkbox approach to compliance-based standards is no longer sufficient in this day and age. It is critical to understand the current shifting trends among mature businesses that have made significant progress on their Cyber Security journey.

Stakeholders and investors will have more faith in you if you use effective Cyber Security measures

When organisations follow adequate practices in accordance with international standards to lessen the risk of being attacked, stakeholders and potential investors will develop more confidence in business operations.
