In July 2007, at InformationSecurityAsia2007, *I unveiled*an idea*to create a cybersecurity CEP Center of Excellence*(COE)*in Thailand.* Under the collaborative guidance of Dr. Rom Hiranpruk, Deputy Director, Technology Management Center, National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA), Dr. Prinya Hom-anek, President and Founder, ACIS professional Center, and Dr. Komain Pipulyarojana, Chief National Security Section, National Electronics and Computer Technology Center (NECTEC), this idea continues to move forward.
Today,*in a meeting with*Mrs. Suwipa Wanasathop, Director, Software Park Thailand, and her executive team, we reached a tentative*agreement to host*the CEP COE at Software Park.***
The*mission of Software Park Thailand*is to be the region’s premier agency supporting entrepreneurs*to help create a strong world-class software industry that will enhance the strength and competitiveness of the Thai economy.
Since 2001, Thailand’s software industry has experienced approximately 20% year-over-year (YOY) growth.* Presently, Software Parks Thailand*supports*a business-technology ecosystem with over 300 active participants employing over 40,000 qualified software engineers across a wide range of technology domains.
I am very pleased that Software Park Thailand is excited about the potential benefits of CEP in the area of cybersecurity and detection-oriented approaches to cyberdefense. The COE will be working with best-of-breed CEP vendors to build, test and refine rule-based (RBS), neural network (NN) based and Bayesian network (BN) based approaches (as well as other detection methods) to cybersecurity.
I*will be announcing more details in the future, so stay tuned.* Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
