A national cyber security committee has been set up in Thailand to protect key state computer facilities.

The committee has been established to report to security, defence and justice branches and has been charged with strengthening the country’s infrastructure to prevent cyber attacks.

The committee will have at least ten organisations divided into three groups.

Entities involved in the structure have been named as the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission, the Bank of Thailand, the Justice Ministry, the Royal Thai Police, the Defence Ministry and the National Security Council.

National security rules will empower the committee to share information and improve links on technology between state agencies and telecom and internet-related service providers.

Thailand expects 80% of its population to have access to the Internet by 2015.
