Cyber Security landing
South Asian countries are subjected to different types of internal pressures and social dynamics when it comes to electronic governance, public-private partnership formation, the concept of “privacy” and Internet freedoms, and critical infrastructure protection in cyberspace. These differences exist for a number of reasons (i.e., scale of population, variation in rates of Internet penetration, economic and social migration patterns, and differences in the nature of telecommunication laws in the South Asian countries). Through workshops and a visiting scholars program, this initiative will bring together scholars who are researching cyberspace issues in the South Asian context.
