Information Security Key to Successful E-Business: Official

The key to successful e-business was safeguarding it against security breaches, Alan Wong Chi-kong, director of Information Technology Services of Hong Kong government, said Tuesday in Hong Kong.

Opening the Integrated Security Conference and Expo 2004, Wong said the Hong Kong government encourages the development of industry-specific information security standards.

The government is consulting various professional organizations and business associations on the feasibility of introducing audit mechanisms to certify information security standards for different industries, Wong said.

The government, in collaboration with various information security associations and industry players, has posted on the Internet information and advice on wireless network security strategies as well as related research findings and best practices for public reference, according to Wong.

Wong said a security management framework had been established in the government to ensure and enhance its internal IT security.

To promote public awareness on the subject, the "Infosec" website (www.infosec.gov.hk) was set up in 2002 to provide information on IT security. The importance of IT security is also publicized through radio broadcasts and TV programs.

Hong Kong Police and the Information Technology Services Department work closely with the Hong Kong Computer Emergency Response Team/Coordination Center to help the public handle cyber attacks, he said.
