Within the last decade, the world has been more interconnected through the cyber world, which relies on internet connection. Nonetheless, such fact has also brought challenges which have shocked the world. There has been an increasing number of global cyber threats in the digital age recently. These include cyber attacks, as well as disruptions on government and electoral commission websites. Unfortunately, the attacks targeted critical infrastructures like hospitals which interrupted the service. Additionally, they also hindered the public from accessing government websites which provide information and online service. Furthermore, they also stormed the electoral commission website, which impacted on the democratic process. Thus, this paper attempts to outline the global cyber attacks experienced by both the developed and developing world. Through desk research, the paper identifies the key findings of current security problems in the digital policy-making era. Referring to the actual facts, this paper recommends a move in raising awareness on potential global cyber threat. It also proposes the formulation of legal measures. Lastly, it endorses the development of comprehensive and collaborative efforts in tackling cyber problems.
