Overview

Laos shows signs of potential cyber maturity, but its fulfilment is contingent on the delivery of new policy and implementation of existing legislation. Laos does possess specific legislation and diversified government agencies dedicated to a range of cyber issues. however there is little evidence of successful implementation. This is reflected in the absence of a cybercrime agency to enforce regulations and the military’s apparent inexperience with cyber threats. A higher score could be achieved through greater engagement with international partners and the private sector, as well as increasing internet penetration levels that remain very low.
