The initial phase of the ministry’s comprehensive plan entails setting up an operational body referred to as the “Task Force Command Centre”, the virtual brain of the operation, as elucidated by Minister Prasert Chantararuangthong in a briefing on Friday.
This administrative centre will adopt a staunch stance against digital deceptions such as online pecuniary frauds and other menacing cyber threats. Moreover, it will administer firm measures against online miscreants who masquerade as government representatives or authorities, fabricating deceptive websites with the sole intent of swindling the unsuspecting public. This aggressive strategy was further detailed by Minister Prasert.
The subsequent stage of the strategic blueprint revolves around leveraging cutting-edge technology, including data analysis and Artificial Intelligence (AI), for scrutinizing online content, thus identifying and fighting off the proliferation of fake news through a dedicated ‘anti-fake news’ hub. This advanced centre would be an online tool for people to authenticate the legitimacy of news URLs or other information sites.
It’s made possible by a robust AI system which scrutinizes the expansive database of fake news platforms, a repository that the ministry has been building up for the past four years. The AI then carries out the task of assessing whether the disseminated information aligns with the patterns of previously detected content bearing the hallmarks of fake news. This innovative technological application was discussed in length by the minister.
On a final note, Minister Prasert drew attention to an additional protective measure – the implementation of a “cyber vaccine”. This metaphorical vaccine is earmarked for those who are disproportionately at risk of falling prey to scamming tactics, specifically focusing on children, students, and the elderly.
As a part of this strategy, the ministry plans to offer tailor-made instructional activities for these vulnerable groups enabling them to build a strong defensive immunity against scheming exploiters and spurious news. He elucidated, “Through this proactive initiative, we aim to inoculate the understanding and identification of scams and fake news at the grassroots level in families and the wider community. The ripple effect of knowledge transfer would empower people to exercise caution in consuming news and sharing information online thereby minimizing the risks associated with online scams,” he asserted.
