Minister Clark to participate in International Cyber ​​Security Week


Minister Dr. David Clark will travel to Singapore on Monday to participate in International Cybersecurity Week, meet with various ministerial counterparts and lead a session on regional cybersecurity.

Singapore International Cybersecurity Week runs from October 18-20 and is one of the biggest events on the international cybersecurity calendar. This is an opportunity for New Zealand to engage with a range of regional and international partners in this time of geopolitical volatility.

“Singapore is an established leader in cybersecurity, both in the Indo-Pacific region and globally,” said David Clark.

“I look forward to this opportunity to engage with my Singaporean and ASEAN counterparts, strengthen our cooperation and demonstrate New Zealand’s support for their important cybersecurity efforts.”

This year’s theme is “Digital Security: A Shared Responsibility”, with participants exploring ways to strengthen collaboration between countries and address the rapidly changing cyber threat landscape.

“Singapore International Cybersecurity Week comes at an important time, when increasingly differing views on the appropriate behavior of states in cyberspace have created an uncertain and unstable cyber landscape.

“Russia’s ongoing war of aggression against Ukraine and the deployment of malicious information campaigns have further heightened tensions and heightened the need for open dialogue and responsible governance.

“Finding common ground between states and building trusted partnerships with industry has never been more critical to the future of cyberspace,” said David Clark.

With New Zealand being an ASEAN Dialogue Partner, Minister Clark was invited to attend and speak at a special session with ASEAN Ministers on regional cybersecurity.

Minister Clark will also meet with a range of ministerial counterparts and industry representatives from around the world, and will use his time in Singapore to learn more about the island’s unique digital transformation journey.

He will travel to Singapore on Monday October 17 and return on Friday October 21.
