Overview

Papua New Guinea (PNG) is taking proactive steps to improve its cyber maturity, but a lack of resources and infrastructure has proven to be a limiting factor in this area. The government has recognised the importance of the issue, joining ITU–IMPACT, pressing for increased investment in digital infrastructure, and calling for a Cyber Cell in its most recent Defence White Paper. Through international engagement, particularly with Australia, PNG has been strongly involved in addressing cybercrime issues, and similar support in other areas of cyber governance and to build technical capabilities could prove highly beneficial for the country.
