Statistics showed an increasing trend of cyber-attack incidents on information systems in Viet Nam in the context of agencies and units strongly promoting digital transformation.
In 2021, the Authority of Information Security recorded, issued warnings about, and guided the handling of more than 9,700 attacks on cyberspace, an increase of 42.42 percent against the previous year.
Last year, attackers took advantage of the COVID-19 epidemic to spread fake news and create more forms of phishing attacks to steal money. The leaking of personal information was also common.
