Vietnam Security Summit 2022 held in Hanoi

27/06/2022 09:08 AM
The Vietnam Security Summit 2022 opened in Hanoi on June 23 with three thematic sessions on measures to strengthen cybersecurity for digital government, the protection of corporate data security in the digital era, and the harnessing of the power of exponential technologies against the emerging cyber threats.

According to the Government Information Security Commission, in 2021, more than 45,000 out of 76,977 cyber attacks on some key network systems were carried out in the form of exploiting vulnerabilities. There were about 14,000 network scanning attacks, more than 12,000 targeted attacks, more than 7,300 authentication attacks, nearly 7,000 malware attacks, and about 650 denial-of-service attacks.

Major reasons behind the problem was the use of software without copyright, and users’ lack of awareness of cybersecurity.

So far this year, the commission has detected more than 48,600 attacks targeting major networks, which means the number of cyber attacks is still rising, bringing more threats to the process of digital Government building and the development of digital economy and society.

In order to ensure information security in the future, Pham Minh Tuan, deputy head of the Cyber Security Assessment section under the Government Information Security Commission’s Centre for Information Technology and Cyber Security Monitoring, underlined that it is necessary to focus on ensuring the security of critical information at each level of the information system.

It is crucial to apply comprehensive measures to protect information security, including information security monitoring, assessing and effectively responding to information security incidents, he stressed.

Highlighting the increasingly dangerous cyber attacks due to the use of higher technologies, Nguyen Minh Hai, a technology solution expert from Fortinet Vietnam said that information security protection solutions should be applied differently in accordance with different levels and types of information networks.

Ensuring information safety and security is a prerequisite in ensuring the sustainable existence of all organisations and businesses in the digital age, he stressed.

The Vietnam Security Summit 2022, held for the fourth time, drew over 40 industry leaders. Running in parallel with the conferences, a vibrant international expo offered an abundance of forward-thinking technologies from over 50 trusted IT vendors.

Ensuring cyber security a top priority: deputy minister

Ensuring cyber information security for digital platforms is a top priority and an integral task in the digital transformation process, said Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Huy Dung at the Viet Nam Security Summit 2022.

At the summit's opening, Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Huy Dung said that the theme was a topical and urgent issue when the process of national digital transformation, development strategy of digital services, digital economy and digital society were being deployed strongly in Viet Nam.

The process affirmed the country's determination on digital transformation. The development, promotion and implementation of digital platforms were considered a breakthrough solution to accelerate the digital transformation process of Viet Nam, he added.

“Digital platforms are where the activities of agencies, organisations, businesses and people take place in the digital environment. Viet Nam's digital platforms are also the national cyberspace, ensuring the safety of digital platforms and the safety of Viet Nam's cyberspace. Therefore, ensuring network information security for digital platforms is considered a top priority and an integral task in the digital transformation process," said Dung.

The Deputy Minister also said that when digital platforms were deployed on a large scale and served a large number of people, they needed to withstand persistent attacks with increasing frequency and scale, more sophisticated technology and worse consequences.

The basic characteristics of the platform were sharing, a large number of users, and the generation of big data, including personal data and data of agencies and organisations. Therefore, he noted that digital platforms were the target of attackers in cyberspace.

In the past, organisations and businesses considered the development of applications with features according to user requirements as key, while information security was only an additional feature, he added.

Today, ensuring information security for platforms must be implemented right from the design stage as one of the most important features of the products, said Dung.

He added that when building and developing national digital platforms, it was necessary to determine the level of information system security and implement a plan to ensure it by levels.

“To do this, platform developers must prioritise spending an appropriate proportion of expenses, we think at least about 20-30 per cent of the total investment, for cyber security features. With that, the cyber security assurance is carried out methodically, professionally, and without patchwork," he said.

The Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Information and Communications also announced that the ministry was promoting, developing and using national digital platforms.

The ministry hopes that businesses providing digital platforms would accompany and participate in the programme towards developing a sustainable digital future, said Dung.

Deputy Director of the Department of Cyber ​​Security and Crime Prevention using High Technology, Colonel Nguyen Ngoc Cuong, said that the explosion of smart devices and artificial intelligence was a threat to cyber security and social order and safety.

There was no comprehensive solution to ensure cyber security for IoT devices. The fourth industrial revolution presented both opportunities and challenges, he noted.

Therefore, we must seize and take advantage of opportunities, proactively prevent and respond to limit negative impacts, and ensure national defence, security, and sustainability of the country's development process.

The Viet Nam Security Summit 2022 attracted more than 800 high-level delegates in charge of cyber information security and information technology from the Government and business sectors in fields such as finance, banking, insurance, telecommunications, retail, e-commerce, logistics, energy, and manufacturing.
