MIC Deputy Minister Nguyen Thanh Hung speaks at the event.

In his opening remarks, MIC Deputy Minister Nguyen Thanh Hung emphasized that, after 11 years, the Vietnam Information Safety Day has become an important annual event and a large international forum to discuss and share information, experience and measures, contributing to raising society’s awareness of information security.

In order to promote the work of ensuring information safety and cybersecurity, state agencies and social organizations should pay attention to updating new knowledge and technology for their staff, while installing technical systems that ensure information standards and meet the requirements for preventing and combating cyber-attacks, Hung said.

He suggested that the community of information security businesses accelerate the research and application of modern platforms and technologies to create new information security products and services, which respond to the constantly changing cyber-attack risks in a more effective manner.

During the plenary session on Friday morning, delegates were updated with a report on the reality of Vietnam’s information safety in 2018, assessment indicators of the VNISA, and presentations delivered by large corporations, both at home and abroad (Amazon, Google, Cisco, Huawei, Jiral and Viettel, among others), on the issues of protecting consumer information, ensuring information security for Internet of Things (IoT), and AI-based cloud computing in service of the implementation of the fourth Industrial Revolution in Vietnam.
