The Acting Prime Minister Hon. Siaosi Sovaleni signed a Framework for Operational Collaboration (FOC) on Cyber Security with the Ambassador for Cyber Affairs, Dr. Tobias Feakin, yesterday in Nuku’alofa.

 

The framework is between Tonga National CERT with CERT Australia to assist addressing of threats and achieving goals in terms of the Cyber Security.

 

Hon. Siaosi Sovaleni said, this is a significant milestone on addressing problems on Cyber Security, as Tonga is facing challenges in the lack of expertise and capacity.

 

Due to the nature of emerging cyber threats, specifically cyber-crime which is border-less in nature, both parties are to form a strategic collaboration so that both organizations can share information and collaborate in matters pertaining to those threats.

 

The parties have a common goal in establishing and strengthening collaborative efforts related to cyber security and computer emergency response.
