Hanoi (VNA) – The State Bank and the Ministry of Transport led ministries and ministry-level agencies in the cyber security readiness rankings in 2020, which were released by the Ministry of Information and Communication (MIC)’s Authority
of Information Security on October 27 as part
of the Vietnam Security Summit 2021.
Among 26 ministries and ministry-level agencies, the State Bank and the Ministry of Transport were rated at A level, while 19 others were ranked B and five at C.
Among 63 cities and provinces, the A rating was awarded to Can Tho, Da Nang, Quang Ngai, Quang Ninh, Thai Nguyen, Thua Thien Hue and Vinh Phuc. Forty-five others were rated at B and 11 at C.
A indicates the highest level of readiness, B denotes decent readiness, and C means medium readiness.
The report is expected to not only help Vietnam promote cyber
safety but also raise awareness of leaders of ministries, agencies and
localities on the issue.
It was the third year the MIC has compiled the rankings that
cover 26 ministries and ministry-level and Government
agencies (excluding the Ministry of Public Security, Ministry of National Defence, and the MIC), and 63 provinces and centrally-run cities nationwide.
The results are based on actual assessments and
surveys in the five pillars of legal, technical, organizational measures,
capacity development and cooperation similar to that of the International
Telecommunication Union (ITU)’s Global Cybersecurity Index./.
