Overview

Cambodia's treatment of cyber issues is largely ad hoc, and it currently has little organisational structure in place. Cambodia has stated that it intends to develop cybercrime legislation based on the model of the Budapest Convention, but there are concerns that the framework may be manipulated and imposed in such a way as to limit free speech online. The government has denied this, stating that there are no plans to use the law to crack down on opposition voices. With very limited internet connectivity, the country's digital economy is fairly constrained. Most of Cambodia's cyber efforts are directed towards capacity and capability building, rather than governance.
