伴隨全球化時代來臨國際分工日益深化，國際產業發展思維轉向「製造經濟邁向服務經濟」、「從硬體製造走向軟性製造」，透過服務業的協助來加值製造業，提升製造業的國際競爭力。台灣是全球 ICT 產品生產大國，在中美貿易大戰之際，更是安全產業供應鏈上重要的一環，再加上擁有完整的半導體產業鏈，此時正是台灣發展「物聯網安全」、「安全物聯網」的重要契機。有鑑於此；如何透過全球資安研發能量讓台灣製造業不再只是單一產品供應者，而是提供滿足客戶除了產品之外的資安需求，透過資安來突顯產品差異化，進而創造更高附加價值。
再者，台灣政經情勢特殊，經常面對嚴峻的網路攻擊，必需用更高標準看待資訊安全，將資訊安全置於國家安全架構內加以觀察與思考。台灣駭客級資安高手深藏民間資安社群蓬勃，甚至帶動台灣這幾年資安創業風潮。近四年台灣已有超過 20 家資安新創公司因物聯網應用蓬勃發展。基於化危機為轉機並提升台灣 ICT 優勢產業資安附加價值，「2021 Explore Next Cyber Taiwan-國際資安新創交流活動」，希望集結國際企業、台灣資通訊製造業者、中外創投、台灣資安企業、進行交流洽商與新興資安技術研討會。今年度預計合作國家包括：荷蘭、以色列、波蘭、盧森堡、澳洲。
In the era of globalization, as the international division of labor goes deeper, the industrial development shifts from "manufacturing economy to service economy" and "from hardware manufacturing to soft manufacturing." The manufacturing industry aims to enhance its international competitiveness with the added value created by the service industry. As a major producer of global ICT products, Taiwan plays an important role in the security industry supply chain during the China-U.S. trade war. It is high time Taiwan develops "Internet of Things Security" and "Secure Internet of Things" with its complete semiconductor industry supply chain. To grasp this opportunity, Taiwanese manufacturers are striving to become not only product suppliers but also cyber security solution providers by taking advantage of the global cyber security research and development. By offering products with distinguishing cyber security functions to customers based on their needs, Taiwanese manufacturers are expecting to create higher added value.
Given special political and economic situations, Taiwan often faces severe cyber attacks. It is necessary to treat cyber security with a higher standard and review it under the national security framework . Taiwanese hackers come deep from private cyber security communities and have driven the wave of entrepreneurship in recent years. In the past 4 years, more than 20 cyber security start-ups have flourished due to IoT applications. To turn cyber attacks into a turning point and increase the added value of Taiwan‘s ICT industry, “2021 Explore Next Cyber Taiwan ” , where international companies, Taiwanese ICT manufacturers, domestic and foreign venture capital companies, and Taiwanese cyber security companies gather to exchange ideas of emerging cyber security technologies and develop potential business opportunities. Invitation to the event will be sent to organizations in the Netherlands, Israel, Poland, Luxembourg and Australia .
