Taiwan’s Minister of Digital Affairs and the Digital Roadmap

A formidable rival to the tech powerhouse South Korea, Taiwan created the Ministry of Digital Affairs and appointed Audrey Tang as its minister in 2022 to drive digital innovation. In this lecture series, Audrey Tang, the leading figure of Taiwan's digital policy, offers an extensive exploration of the future and trajectory of digital technology through the policies she is implementing. The series delves into Taiwan's cybersecurity crisis and its counter-strategies. As Taiwan and the international community grapple with a surge in cyberattacks, what exactly is the 'zero trust' strategy that Tang endorses as a fundamental principle of cybersecurity?

It also explores the concept of "Digital technology for the common good," examining the digital transformation policies and data altruism approach of Taiwan's Ministry of Digital Affairs, which emphasizes "digital resilience for all" as its key priority. Discover more about data altruism and its potential to foster an inclusive digital society.

Audrey Tang is Taiwan’s first Minister of Digital Affairs and recognized as one of the country's top 10 computer experts. She is also the world's first transgender minister. After dropping out of middle school, Tang taught herself programming and began working as a developer, contributing to the internationalization and localization of free software programs in both Taiwan and Silicon Valley.

In 2014, her involvement in Taiwan's pro-democracy Sunflower Student Movement led her to become a civic hacker - a role dedicated to using digital technology to solve societal and political issues. Consequently, she was appointed as the Minister without Portfolio for Digital Affairs, a prestigious cabinet position. In 2022, she assumed office as the head of the newly formed digital ministry. Audrey Tang is credited with playing a pivotal role in realizing Taiwan's digital democracy through the convergence of technology and politics.
