SINGAPORE (Reuters) – Asean hopes to strike a joint agreement on cyber security with Russia, accused by the United States of meddling in its elections, after a series of high-profile hacks in the region. The draft of a document is set to be issued by Asean foreign ministers at the close of meetings underway with other global lawmakers in Singapore. The host of the ASEAN meeting, Singapore, recently suffered its worst ever cyber attack when hackers stole the personal information of about 1.5 million people, including Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, from a government health database.
