Beware the cyber warriors
Recently, our authorities have admitted that Thailand needs to improve cyber security standards against hackers. Yet the government over the past four years has mainly hunted down other groups of "violators" -- political dissidents and lese majeste offenders.
As the government plans to recruit civilian so-called "cyber warriors", it needs to ensure they target the right groups of people.
By next month, the Digital Economy and Society Ministry will have spent 350 million baht to hire and train 200 cyber warriors. Its ultimate target is "5,000 warriors by 2023", or within five years.
