In the first quarter of 2021, the Department of Information Security at the Ministry of Information and Communications recorded 1,271 cyber-attacks on information systems in Vietnam, a reduction of 20% compared to the same period last year.
By 2030 Vietnam will be listed as one of the top 30 countries for the International Telecommunication Union’s (ITU) Global Cybersecurity Index, targeted the national digital transformation program.
Vietnam has so far this year recorded more than 7,000 cyber attacks, the Vietnam Computer Emergency Response Team (VNCERT) reported.
Vietnam ranked 50th out of 175 countries on the Global Cybersecurity Index (CGI) in 2018, up 50 places from the previous year, according to a report by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU).
Vietnam recorded 6,219 cyber attacks since the start of 2019, a year-on-year surge of 104 percent, said the Vietnam Computer Emergency Response Team (VNCERT).
Cyberattacks are increasingly complicated and dangerous with an increasing number of attacks, requiring a comprehensive security solution encompassing regulations, technology, and human resources.
