NSC and MND to join cybersecurity body
The National Security Council (NSC) and the Ministry of National Defense (MND) will assign representatives to serve as board members of the Ministry of Digital Affairs' (MODA) recently inaugurated cybersecurity organization.
By law, the new institute will have seven to 11 board members, with several from government agencies, including the NSC and the MND.
Other board members will be cybersecurity scholars and professionals as well as those who have made important contributions to cybersecurity.
The cybersecurity organization is set to become operational early next year. The institute will hire about 180 employees from the Cabinet's Cybersecurity Center of Excellence, and the National Center for Cyber Security Technology as well as from the private sector in its initial stage.
The Ministry of Digital Affairs says the institute has been given a broad mandate to oversee the development of digital infrastructure and cybersecurity.
