Tuan Anh found 55 security holes on Oracle's E-Business Suite product, a widely used software suite in the corporate environment, including a serious vulnerability could allow hackers to take control of the software remotely.

Previously, Nguyen Tuan Anh also topped Bugcrowd's ranking in April 2021. With nearly 200 discovered security holes, Tuan Anh has received the title “Most Valuable Professional” (MVP) of Bugcrowd for 4 times.

In 2020, he found 55 security holes on Oracle's E-Business Suite product, a widely used software suite in the corporate environment, including a serious vulnerability could allow hackers to take control of the software remotely. E-Business Suite is a popular product used by large enterprises and organizations in the world (with 20% of enterprises in the Top 500 fortune globally using it).

In April 2021, another expert of Viettel Cyber Security, Pham Van Khanh, won the world's largest cyberattack competition Pwn2Own 2021.

The achievements of Vietnamese cybesecurity experts contribute to affirming Viettel Security's pioneering and leading position in the field of information security in Vietnam.

As a member of Viettel Group, Viettel Cyber Security has more than 300 employees, including leading Vietnamese experts in the field of network security, who hold many prestigious information security certificates.

Vietnamese cybersecurity expert topped the ranking of white-hat hackers in the world.

To date, Viettel Cyber Security has discovered more than 300 0-day vulnerabilities - undetected errors of major global information technology systems. In 2020 alone, its experts detected nearly 100 0-day vulnerabilities. As a result, the company received the "Vietnam's best network security management service provider" award from Frost & Sullivan.

 

The Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) has set a goal that Vietnam must develop into a powerhouse in cyber security. To achieve this goal, Vietnam’s network security rating cannot be low. Vietnam currently ranks 50/194 countries. MIC issued a plan to raise Vietnam’s position to the 40th in 2025 and 30th in 2030.

Phan Hoang Giap, Head of Integrated Solutions Department, Viettel Cyber Security Company, said that Vietnam has relatively enough factors to achieve the above goals. These factors include: MIC issued a fairly complete legal framework to orient information security work in all fields; Vietnam already has a fairly strong community of network security firms, with many businesses mastring important core technology of information security; Vietnam is always highly appreciated for human resources in the field of cybersecurity.

According to Nguyen Thanh Dat, Deputy General Director of VNCS, besides the market size, Vietnam needs to pay attention to the growth rate. Vietnam has a very high growth rate compared to the regional average. The growth of Vietnam's cyberinformation security services is approximately 35%/year, compared to 25% of Thailand and 15% of Singapore.
