In a set of new In Briefs, Dr Amanda HA Watson looks at undersea internet cables in the Pacific region. Such cables allow the transfer of internet data through optical fibre and offer an alternative to satellite technology.

The second paper explores relevant cybersecurity risks, geopolitical issues and questions of reliability.
