Hanoi (VNA) – Over 150 IT experts from ministries, central agencies and local governments gathered in a symposium and cyberattack response exercise held on the e-meeting platform on December 22.

The events were co-organised by the Authority of Information Security under the Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC), the Cyberspace Operations Command under the Ministry of National Defence, and cybersecurity corporation BKAV to build capacity for the national cybersecurity emergency response force.

Nguyen Thanh Phuc, Director of the Authority of Information Security, said to get prepared for potential cyberattacks, the MIC added members to the national cybersecurity emergency response force this year.

These events would provide a chance for the force to explore how to closely coordinate with each other in dealing with emergencies, he said.

Vietnam recorded 2,915 cyberattacks in the first six months of 2021, an increase of 898 compared with the same period last year./.
