Hanoi (VNA) – The Vietnam Security Summit 2022 opened in Hanoi on
June 23 with three thematic sessions on measures to strengthen cybersecurity
for digital government, the protection of corporate data security in the digital
era, and the harnessing of the power of exponential technologies against the
emerging cyber threats.

According to the Government Information Security Commission, in 2021, more
than 45,000 out of 76,977 cyber attacks on some key network systems were
carried out in the form of exploiting vulnerabilities. There were about 14,000
network scanning attacks, more than 12,000 targeted attacks, more than 7,300
authentication attacks, nearly 7,000 malware attacks, and about 650
denial-of-service attacks.

Major reasons behind
the problem was the use of software without copyright, and users’ lack of
awareness of cybersecurity.

So far this year, the commission
has detected more than 48,600 attacks targeting major networks, which means the number
of cyber attacks is still rising, bringing more threats to the process of digital
Government building and the development of digital economy and society.

In order to ensure information security in
the future, Pham Minh Tuan, deputy head of the Cyber Security Assessment section under
the Government Information Security Commission’s Centre for Information
Technology and Cyber Security Monitoring, underlined that it is necessary to
focus on ensuring the security of critical information at each level of
the information system.

It is crucial to apply
comprehensive measures to protect information security, including information security
monitoring, assessing and effectively responding to information security
incidents, he stressed.

Highlighting the
increasingly dangerous cyber attacks due to the use of higher technologies,
Nguyen Minh Hai, a technology solution expert from Fortinet Vietnam said that information
security protection solutions should be applied differently in accordance with different
levels and types of information networks.

Ensuring information
safety and security is a prerequisite in ensuring the sustainable existence of
all organisations and businesses in the digital age, he stressed.

The Vietnam Security
Summit 2022, held for the fourth time, drew over 40 industry leaders. Running
in parallel with the conferences, a vibrant international expo offered an
abundance of forward-thinking technologies from over 50 trusted IT vendors./.
