VIETNAM SECURITY SUMMIT 2020
Nowadays, public agencies and private businesses in Vietnam are incrementally embracing digital transformation to improve operational efficiency. However, as data moves off-premise and the number of connected devices explodes, hackers can now take advantage of the expanding attack surface to commit far more sophisticated crimes. According to Authority of Information Security (Ministry of Information & Communications), as of September 2019, Vietnam ranked 2nd worldwide in terms of malware infections, 3rd in terms of botnet attacks and 2nd in South East Asia for email ones. Notably, powered by such 4.0 technologies as AI/ML, Big Data and Automation, attacks have considerably grown in size, duration and frequency, leading to unprecedented data exfiltration targeted at national critical infrastructures and businesses’ sensitive systems. As a result, in the last few years, there has been a considerable increase in the national investment in cyber defense solutions.
Continuing success of the 2019 event, with an aim to keep Vietnam’s organizations updated and adaptive with latest trends of modern-day cyber landscape, Vietnam Security Summit 2020 will be held on November 10, 2020 at InterContinental Hanoi Landmark72 under the endorsement of the Central Economic Commission and Ministry of Information and Communications; IEC Group, Department of Industry (Central Economic Commission) and Authority of Information Security (Ministry of Information and Communications) are co-organizers.
