The event was part of the international seminar-exhibition entitled " Make in Vietnam cybersecurity - A key factor in national digital transformation". It was attended by Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Manh Hung, Vice Chairman of the National Assembly's Committee for Science, Technology and Environment Le Quang Huy, Deputy Minister of Education and Training Hoang Minh Son, and many other officials.

The Ministry of Information and Communications has identified that digital transformation is a comprehensive, all-people revolution. In fact, digital transformation is taking place in all areas. To successfully conduct digital transformation, change of perception and business model is required.

Digital technology is about realizing those changes. The solution to speeding up the transformation is to develop digital platforms. In order to ensure efficiency and safety, and reliability, “Make in Vietnam” digital platforms will be a dominant choice for users.

One of the key pillars of digital transformation is national digital infrastructure. Transforming from a telecom infrastructure to digital infrastructure entails shifting to 5G broadband telecommunications infrastructure, fiber optic cable and cloud computing.

In order to accelerate the development of cloud computing platforms, thereby serving as an important foundation for national digital transformation, in April 2020, the Ministry of Information and Communications issued technical criteria to evaluate and select cloud computing solutions for e-government/e-governance.

The set of technical criteria includes 153 criteria, including 84 technical criteria and 69 information security criteria. A cloud computing platform that meet these 153 criteria is considered a modern and secure platform.

Shortly thereafter, the Ministry of Information and Communications instructed the Department of Information Security to urgently assess the “Make in Vietnam” cloud computing platforms.
