The Vietnam Computer Emergency Response Team (VNCERT) has inked a deal with Microsoft to enhance cybersecurity - an issue that has been given high priority by the Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) for 2014.

In another deal, MIC has also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Microsoft covering IT infrastructure, cybersecurity, cloud apps development and education.

Director of VNCERT, Vu Quoc Khanh, highlighted that the MoU is a promise to bring positive change to information security in Vietnam by addressing large-scale issues such as business espionage and access to government information.

VNCERT will work with Microsoft to coordinate computer emergency assistance and inspect security breaches as the country witnesses a rise in cybercrime. The agency rates 78 out of 100 websites on the gov.vn domain to have “seriously” poor security systems.

Under the MoU with MIC, Microsoft will also support training of local IT workforce.
