Vietnam’s top internet security firm BKAV will provide cyber security expert training for 100 Cuban officials between 2014 and 2017, in a deal agreed during the March visit to Cuba by Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung.

The training programme will cover a number of in-depth issues such as analysis design for online security systems, measures to prevent internet attacks and the inspection of security breaches.

Cuban officials will receive money for travel, accommodation and learning materials from the Vietnamese firm.

Additionally, BKAV will grant 5,000 anti-virus software copyrights to Cuba.-VNA
