Vietnam wants to create a safe environment for its digital transformation, said Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Manh Hung at the Vietnam Security Summit 2019 in Hanoi on Tuesday.

The event, themed Cyber security in the age of digital transformation, included 3 seminars on Vietnam's security situation, international experiences, and ways to improve cyber security. On the sidelines were 2 sessions, one on cyber security management and data center protection, and one on prevention of malware, backdoor attacks, and information breaches. Minister Nguyen Manh Hung told the Summit: In 2019, Vietnam will announce its digital transformation strategy to build a digital economy and digital society. Cyber security is a fundamental factor, which creates a safe environment for the government, businesses, and citizens when using digital technology and digital transactions. Vietnam will create cyber security products and services that meet international standards to ensure security for governmental agencies and key national infrastructure facilities as well as the ability to recover after an attack.
