Policy essay on Cybersecurity on the Edge?

Internet-connected ‘always on’ systems and devices present one of the greatest privacy and cyber security challenge to nations, their governments, economies, and societies. The fast-paced development of new digital technologies and the growing number of smart IoT devices amplify this challenge.

The success or failure to address cyber security and privacy challenges in this context will have implications for our trust in the internet. Therefore, it is vital for policymakers to address those challenges effectively and in a timely manner.
Based on our secondary research and analysis of literature and governments’ policy initiatives, we identify and recommend ‘tools’ that could lead to effective cyber threat mitigation.

We conclude that not one single actor or solution is able to combat cyber security threats and privacy risks. Instead, a holistic whole-of-nation approach must be adopted that involves all stakeholders and focuses on building cyber resilience across all sectors, industries, and societal groups.
