This is an expanded program from the campaign “Detecting security holes on technology platforms for epidemic prevention and control”, which was launched on October 4.

With the vision of turning Vietnam into a digital country, and a country of stable development and prosperity by 2030, the National Digital Transformation Program approved by the government in June 2020 emphasizes that cybersecurity is the key and an integral component to successful and sustainable digital transformation.

Based on this awareness, the Bug Bounty program was initiated to detect security holes, better protecting national digital transformation platforms.

Bug Bounty is an annual program, which takes place from October 2021 to October 2022 in the first year. The total prize money in the first year is up to VND1 billion (nearly $50,000) and is expected to increase annually.

Under this program, the Ministry of Information and Communications will announce the list of the top 50 experts who have made great contributions to the detection of security holes on "Vietnam Information Security Day", which is held in November every year. The top three cybersecurity experts will receive awards and certificates of merit from the Minister of Information and Communications.

 

Information about the Bug Bounty program will be updated on the website https://bugrank.io/user/NCSC/policy.

According to the National Cyber Security Center (NCSC), the Bug Bounty Program is a solution to help the Government easily connect with leading security experts in the country and the world, and shorten time and save costs to ensure network security for detecting vulnerabilities on national digital transformation platforms.

Globally, vulnerability search platforms are common in the field of information security. "White-hat hackers" or vulnerability experts search for security holes on the platforms of large enterprises such as Google, Mircosoft or Bug Crowd... The Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA), an agency of the US government, has selected Bug Crowd and EnDyna to implement a federal policy to find vulnerabilities on Government technology platforms.
