Some 43 participants encompassing Brunei Darussalam’s Critical National Information Infrastructure (CNII) attended a three-day cybersecurity workshop recently, facilitated by the national cybersecurity agency Cyber Security Brunei (CSB).
The attendees represented CNII sectors including info-communications, energy, healthcare, banking and finance, defence, security, emergency response services and aviation.

The second day covered risk management strategy and supply chain security, while the final day touched on mobile device security and concluded with security awareness.
