The Royal Thai Police and Electronic Transactions Development Agency (ETDA) of Thailand are to collaborate to develop human resource capabilities, and transfer and disseminate knowledge on cybersecurity, in order to improve security of electronic transactions.


The two organisations signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), pushing for a mechanism to protect against and deal with cybersecurity risks. The agencies recognise the rise of digital forensics for protecting the cyberspace, and the importance of developing human resource capability and technical knowledge.


The agreement, lasting for five years, includes dissemination of information on cybersecurity risks to the public, exchange of technical know-how, and facilitation of training sessions and seminars. The two agencies are also looking to jointly work on the verification of digital evidence, development of digital evidence authentication standards, and contribute to the development of technical knowledge on digital evidence and authentication.


Both agencies are to take turns hosting a joint biannual meeting to prepare and update the annual work plan and monitor the progress of projects implemented under this agreement.


The Police and ETDA expressed hope that this agreement will enable citizens and businesses to engage in secure and safe electronic transactions.
