Vietnam: Cybersecurity Roadmap for Bac Giang 

The northern province of Bac Giang is increasing efforts to enhance cybersecurity, strengthening its digital transformation journey. During the fourth quarter of 2023, the Department of Information and Communications plans to increase investments in equipment, software, and monitoring systems to secure the information systems and databases of government agencies.

The department will also partner with the Authority of Information Security, under the Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC), to assess information safety and assign trusted network labels to the online portals of the province and its various departments and localities.

From now until 2025, the department will prioritise establishing operational procedures for the province’s systems. This will ensure the provision of regular updates that align with recommendations on information safety and security from experts. Operational procedures include conducting risk assessments, regularly monitoring potential threats and the early detection and warning of changes or attacks.

Simultaneously, initiatives will be undertaken to assemble a cybersecurity expert team, dedicated to timely monitoring, prevention, intervention, and resolution of security breaches and technology-related crimes.

The Department’s Director, Tran Minh Chieu, stated that the province will continue to implement the directives outlined in the Prime Minister’s Directive No. 14/CT-TTG, issued on 7 June 2019, targeted at bolstering cyberspace safety and security.

Bac Giang will roll out monitoring, evaluation, protection, and response activities for its information systems based on a four-layer model. This approach aims to ensure proactive adaptation, flexibility, and the minimisation of risks and threats to information safety within cyberspace.

The province will enhance and broaden its Security Operations Centre (SOC) system, connecting it with the national e-government support, monitoring, and management system. The system will assess risks, monitor and detect attacks, issue early warnings, and promptly respond to incidents related to information safety in the area.

The province will build and implement a system to quickly identify and detect legal violations in cyberspace. It will also direct organisations and businesses offering digital infrastructure and platforms to strengthen information safety measures.

During the third quarter of this year, the department guided agencies and units in the province to register for the use of information system security management platforms at various levels. Simultaneously, efforts were intensified to accelerate the classification of security levels for information systems across the province.

So far, the safety levels for 45 information systems managed by the provincial People’s Committee have been approved by the Chairman and the Director of the provincial Department of Information and Communications.

At the recommendation of the provincial police, the Chairman approved the organisation of a three-level online conference on ensuring network safety and security and protecting state secrets.

The province’s law enforcement force has received and investigated 13 high-tech crimes, resulting in damages exceeding VND 22 billion (US$ 910,408). They resolved an online fraud case where perpetrators posed as bank employees, offering online credit services and deceiving thousands of victims nationwide, leading to the misappropriation of approximately VND 30 billion (US$ 1.2 million). Additionally, law enforcement identified significant security vulnerabilities in 12 surveillance camera devices of the Ha Lang Railway JSC and detected 130 security errors in the electronic portal of Bac Giang Power Company.

Under the national cybersecurity strategy released last year, the government has been working to train and develop human resources in cybersecurity, raise awareness about cybersecurity skills, and secure funding to implement cybersecurity initiatives. It aims to foster digital trust and build an honest, civilized, and healthy network environment.
