GovCERT.HK Annual Report 2020
2020 has been an extraordinarily challenging year for all of us to adapt swiftly to the rapidly changing global conditions. Under the “new normal” amid the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID 19) epidemic, the Government Computer Emergency Response Team Hong Kong (GovCERT.HK) has maintained its smooth operation and contributed in fighting this battle by offering assistance to the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China in combating the epidemic. We have also monitored the associated risks and provided information security advice on the work from home arrangement and usage of video conferencing solutions to government users. In response to arising cyber attacks using COVID 19 related themes, we have worked closely with stakeholders to provide security advice in a timely manner. All these measures have been proven to be vital for Hong Kong’s integral effort in maintaining a secure cyberspace under the ever-changing global digital environment.
