4IR poses network security risk to Vietnam

HANOI – The Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) is expected to create great opportunities for Vietnam, but it will also pose network security risks, heard a security conference in Hanoi early this week.

Deputy Minister of Public Security Bui Van Nam, speaking at the conference held by the Ministry of Public Security’s Department of Network Security and Department of Information Safety, and International Data Group (IDG Vietnam), said the 4IR would help Vietnam take advantage of information technology (IT), automate business processes, enhance connectivity and access big data.

Nam, however, said this revolution would also expose Vietnam to risks of network and information security breaches.

Nam described the recent hacker attacks in the banking, telecom and aviation sectors as serious, saying hacking and terrorism have become a pressing security issue for all countries.

Data of the Vietnam Computer Emergency Response Center shows more than 134,000 cyber attacks occurred in Vietnam in 2016, a fourfold rise against 2015.

Meanwhile, large numbers of users are still unaware of this danger. “All citizens and organizations need to be aware of information security, find effective security solutions and work closely with network security experts to protect themselves from cyber attacks,” Nam said.
