Vietnam Exploring Increased Cybersecurity Measures

The Ministry of Public Security and Su That (Truth) National Political Publishing House in Hanoi recently held a symposium on ensuring national sovereignty in cyberspace. Speaking at the event, the Chairman of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Information and Education, Nguyen Trong Nghia, said that it is necessary to early detect, fight and prevent attacks in cyberspace.

Over the past few years, the Vietnamese Party and state have issued many policies to ensure information cyber safety and security. These policies and stances have been realised in specific strategies such as the Strategy for National Protection in Cyberspace, the National Border Protection Strategy, the National Cyber Security Strategy, and the Law on Cyber Security. With the rapid development of the Internet, non-traditional security issues, including cybersecurity and the task of ensuring national sovereignty in cyberspace, are of important significance in the cause of national building and safeguarding, Nghia added.

According to a news report, an official at the event stated that national sovereignty in cyberspace is the supreme, absolute, and complete right that the State manages and controls directly or indirectly through policies, laws, and technological capacity in accordance with international law. To improve the effectiveness of state management in this issue, he emphasised the need to build a healthy cyber environment, a competent specialised force, and proactively deal with all risks occurring in cyberspace.

The Minister of Public Security General, To Lam, cited a report by the International Criminal Police Organisation that said crimes using high-technology ranked second among the most dangerous types of crimes, after terrorism, and 90% of traditional criminals have moved to the cyber environment or have used high-tech devices. Therefore, the issue of developing and mastering cyberspace has become one of the urgent tasks that many countries have paid special attention to.

To meet the increasing requirements of the task of ensuring national sovereignty in cyberspace, the government asked the public security forces to continue stepping up the implementation of measures to ensure cybersecurity, and fight against crimes in cyberspace, and improve the quality of training in information technology and cybersecurity. The government aims to cooperate with countries, universities, and advanced technology groups in the world to absorb new technologies and experience to ensure a high standard of cybersecurity is met to combat the growing number of cyber threats.

The Vietnamese Internet economy could reach US$220 billion in gross merchandise volume (GMV) by 2030, ranking second in Southeast Asia after Indonesia, according to a recently published e-report. It is forecasted that the country’s digital economy will see a growth rate of 31% this year over the same period last year, reaching US$21 billion.

The results are welcoming in the context of the shrinking online travel market. If this growth is maintained, Vietnam’s GMV is expected to reach US$57 billion by 2025. Since COVID-19 reappeared in the first half of this year, the country has added 8 million digital consumers, of whom more than half come from non-metro areas. Notably, 99% of these new consumers expressed their intention to continue using online services post-pandemic, showing a very high level of adoption of digital services and products of users in the country.
