Research, Consultation and Strategy Significant cyber and digital security research and strategizing are needed within Myanmar, including to involve experts from Asia and further afield. A larger and longer-term strategy cannot be developed without this work, and without a program to develop more capacity and leadership. As such the first step is to know the situation better in order to develop a more appropriate long-term strategy. • A Myanmar cyber/digital security strategy retreat to assess key needs, threats, opportunities and to develop longer-term strategy and program. Key Asian and international technical and policy people to be invited. • Initial testing, research and curation of recent research to produce a short, up to date document outlining the state of the Myanmar Internet in Burmese and English.
Awareness Raising • A series of short and funky awareness raising videos on digital safety and security in the combination with a social media campaign • Further packaging and distribution of existing tutorial videos, and the production of new ones where gaps still exist • Development of a show for DVB on digital rights and digital security issues • A series of digital rights awareness raising days in Yangon, Mandalay and Napidaw
Digital Security Capacity Development • 10 training of trainers camp will be organised. The camp would bring together 10 existing digital security experts with 10-15 new participants each with an interest in becoming digital security trainers. Proper follow-up activities are vital to ensure engagement is retained, including 10 two-day follow-ups events within 24 months, support for regular meet-ups in cities outside Yangon, leadership development, the creation of a peer network, and development of employment opportunities. • A series of digital safety and security training aimed at parliamentarians and/or their staff.
