ASEAN-Japan Cybersecurity Capacity Building Centre



Our Mission and Priority in Privacy

The main mission of AJCCBC is to build capacity and provide knowledge regarding cybersecurity, which has become tremendously essential in the modern world, to the cybersecurity officials in ASEAN member states. Central to this mission is our commitment to be transparent about the data we collect about you, how it is used and with whom it is shared.
This Privacy Policy applies when you use our Services (described below). We offer our users choices about the data we collect, use and share as described in this Privacy Policy, Cookie Policy, Settings and our Help Center.

Introduction

The ASEAN-Japan Cybersecurity Capacity Building Centre (AJCCBC) was established under the guidance of TELMIN/SOM in 2018 and funded by Japan ASEAN Integration Fund (JAIF 2.0) with the aim to develop a cybersecurity workforce of 700 over 4 years to enhance the capacity of cybersecurity experts and specialists in the AMS by providing trainings and other activities to participants from ASEAN member states. We are currently operating this project online to adapt ourselves in this epidemic. In doing so, we would require our participants for their personal information in registration.
