From the article:
Great, let's introduce a single point of failure. Any damage to the submarine cables in Vietnam and we already have a buggy connection. Imagine their control point going down.... Governments don't have a good track record with IT-projects. Cambodia's CERT has been hacked before (wiki CERT: "term for an expert group that handles computer security incidents"). A project like this would make a nice target for DDoS, ransomware or physical attack extortion schemes.“Currently there are a lot of gateways such as VoIP, telecommunications, and submarine cable networks. We are looking at finding a way to change this into a single national port to ensure we can control internet usage, and make it safer and more secure,”
I'm curious what online security it is supposed to offer. Maybe he misspoke and meant better censorship capabilities.
How? With an increase in end-to-end communication they have nothing to look at anymore. Scams targeted to the local population should be addressed through education, awareness campaigns and ensuring available employment at decent wages in Cambodia. Scammers hiding out here while targeting nationals abroad (hello chinks) are already rounded up on a regular base without the SIG."He said a SIG will help prevent people from falling victim to online scams and prevent the use of the internet to threaten national security."
