Vietnam introduces new information security system to facilitate e-governance

The National Cyber Security Center of Vietnam (NCSC) launched a new governmental information sharing and security monitoring system Friday.

With this system, the observation and analyses of internet activities would be shared by all levels of the government, and provide early alerts for potential attacks and other threats.

After a six month trial run, the system has connected 31 ministries and provinces with the NCSC. Soon, all ministries, industries and provincial authorities can be linked to enhance national information security.

The NCSC, a unit of the Authority of Informational Security under the Ministry of Information and Communication, has developed the new Information Sharing and Security Monitoring System in co-operation with Vietnam Malware and Cyber-attack Prevention alliance, which brings together five leading companies in Vietnam in information security, VNPT, Viettel, CMC, FPT and BKAV.
