NDO/VNA - The Viettel Cyber Security Company (VSC), a subsidiary of the Viettel Military Industry and Telecoms Group (Viettel), has become a member of the Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG).

The membership is a new step for the company in connecting and sharing network security knowledge and early warnings, to help prevent the threat of cyber-attacks on a global scale. As a member, the VSC now has access to international-level information and cyber security risks to promptly develop suitable action plans.

The VSC’s Make-in-Vietnam Threat Intelligence technology, meanwhile, has become the first Vietnamese product selected to be part of the APWG’s network.

Launched in October, the platform is a modern network security solution focusing on gathering and analysing information on current cyber-attacks and potential threats to organisations’ and businesses’ assets, reputation, and safety. Equipped with data from internal studies conducted by leading Viettel experts, it is being applied in the services of Viettel and a number of banks in Vietnam.

Established in 2003, the APWG is an industry association focused on unifying the global response to cybercrimes. There are more than 2,000 enterprises worldwide participating in the group.
