Greetings from the Australian National in Canberra, which is holding "Vietnam Update 2018". The last session of the day is on Social media, digital technologies and cybersecurity. The first speaker was Mr. Nguyen Quang Dong, from the Institute for Policy Studies and Media Development. He pointed out Vietnam now has a high penetration of Internet users, mostly via smart phones. There were 134,000 cyber-attacks in Vietnam in 2016. One driver for improving security is to be able to join multi-national trade agreements. He pointed out the difficulties where national regulations require cloud computing facilities to be located on-shore.
ps: ANU is now offering a cyber security major in its computing degrees and a Master of Cyber Security, Strategy and Risk Management.
