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.
