At the heart of Bac Giang’s strategy lies a commitment to bolstering the safety and security of its information networks. Recognising the critical role of cyberspace in enabling economic growth and societal progress, the province is intensifying efforts to implement Prime Ministerial Directive No. 14/CT-TTG, which delineates measures to enhance cyberspace safety and security.

By adhering to a comprehensive four-layer model for information network supervision and protection, Bac Giang aims to proactively identify and mitigate risks while safeguarding against potential threats to information security.

By leveraging advanced monitoring tools and early warning systems, Bac Giang seeks to bolster its ability to detect and respond to cyber threats promptly, thereby ensuring the resilience of its digital ecosystem.

To fortify its cybersecurity infrastructure, Bac Giang is embarking on an expansion of its Security Operations Centre (SOC) system. This initiative entails the integration of SOC capabilities with the national e-government support infrastructure, enabling seamless coordination and real-time monitoring of information networks.

The dedicated SOC will be tailored to the needs of local networks. Through strategic alignment with the national SOC system, the province aims to enhance its capacity to assess risks, identify legal violations, and intervene proactively in cyberspace. This proactive stance underscores Bac Giang’s resolve to stay ahead of emerging cybersecurity challenges and uphold the integrity of its digital infrastructure.

In tandem with its cybersecurity initiatives, Bac Giang is ramping up investments in equipment, software, and monitoring systems to fortify information safety and security. This includes safeguarding the information systems and databases of government agencies, a crucial step in preserving the integrity of public sector data and bolstering trust in governmental institutions.

In a proactive move to preemptively address future cybersecurity threats, Bac Giang’s provincial leadership has formulated a comprehensive action plan aligned with the national cybersecurity strategy. This forward-looking approach encompasses measures to bolster cybersecurity resilience until 2025, with a long-term vision extending to 2030.

Additionally, security levels for third-level information systems under the jurisdiction of the provincial People’s Committee have been delineated, further enhancing Bac Giang’s cybersecurity posture.

Despite these proactive measures, Bac Giang has not been immune to the scourge of cybercrime. The provincial public security department has reported 22 high-tech crimes, including a notable online fraud case involving substantial financial losses. Swift and decisive action by law enforcement agencies led to the apprehension of perpetrators, underscoring Bac Giang’s commitment to combating cyber threats and ensuring a secure digital environment for its residents.

In tandem with its cybersecurity endeavours, Bac Giang is leveraging the power of positive online engagement to counter harmful misinformation and foster community resilience. Initiatives include disseminating accurate information through official channels, promoting responsible social media usage, and cultivating a culture of digital citizenship among residents.

Looking ahead, Bac Giang is poised to further amplify its cybersecurity measures and digital transformation initiatives, positioning the province as a beacon of technological innovation and socioeconomic advancement in the digital age. By safeguarding its information networks and promoting responsible online behavior, Bac Giang is laying the groundwork for a prosperous and resilient digital future.
