30 April 2021

The MoU will serve as a framework for the signatories’ joint activities on promoting cybersecurity awareness, capacity building, and best practices across Oceania and the Asia-Pacific region.

“The APTLD community welcomes OCSC as a leading centre of unique expertise and good practices in, perhaps, the most critical area, which is of prime concern to our Membership. Separated by huge distances and, for a while, COVID19- related physical barriers, our Members – and those in Oceania in the first place- are in a dire need for capacity building, guidance and advice on cybersecurity to effectively protect local governments, businesses and end-users and promote educational and awareness raising initiatives. We are proud to stand together with OCSC in assisting our Members’ efforts to make Oceania’s ccTLDs more safe and secure”, said Mr. Leonid Todorov, General Manager of APTLD.

 “We are delighted to partner with APTLD to address an emerging area of need for Top-Level Domain (TLD) administrators across our region. Responding to the ever-increasing threat provided by bad-actors and cyber-criminals, TLD managers must ensure that they are constantly vigilant to respond to such threats and the provision of appropriate training and skills enhancement is one of the first lines of defence. OCSC looks forward to partnering with APTLD improve the capacity of TLD managers to continue to provide a safe and secure internet.”, said Cameron Boardman, Director of OCSC.

APTLD and OCSC are now looking forward to APTLD80 as a groundbreaking event for their collaboration and will be busy preparing more online training sessions in anticipation of a return of the business as usual.


Founded in 1998 as a non-profit entity and incorporated in Malaysia, APTLD (Asia Pacific Top Level Domain Association) is one of four Regional Organizations across the globe and a unique platform for knowledge and expertise sharing for ccTLD (country-code Top Level Domain) registries in the Asia Pacific region.
