Cabinet approves NT$1.4 billion digital resilience budget
The Cabinet has approved a proposal to spend NT$1.34 billion for the cryptographic splitting of cloud-stored data from 18 key infrastructure management systems.
The Ministry of Digital Affairs said establishing a cryptographic splitting mechanism will ensure key infrastructure management systems can continue functioning during disasters.
Officials add that the cryptographic splitting of data is part of a multiyear plan to transfer data to cloud-based storage. The first stage of the programme is to transfer data from 29 infrastructure systems to a public cloud between 2021 and 2025, while the second stage will see the establishment of a cryptographic splitting mechanism between 2024 to 2027.
The Ministry of Digital Affairs says data covered by the proposal includes the National Health Insurance management system, the vehicle management system, and the entry and exit management system.
