EuroCham co-hosted AmCham event – Multi-Chamber Meeting on CyberSecurity in Vietnam

As Vietnam continues to experience website attacks driven by regional conflicts and cyber crime, the American, European and British chambers of commerce have collaborated to support a survey of website security in Vietnam.

The objective is to summarize common website security practices by local and international firms in Vietnam and compare them to website security best practices.  The survey results will be analyzed by TRG International and MF8 and a report written focusing on the gap between local implementation and industry best practices.

At the October 22 meeting the report findings will be presented to chamber members and participants.  The presentation will be followed by a panel of experts that will comment on the findings and take questions from attendees.

The target audience for the event is:

– Senior management who want to understand internet risks in Vietnam

– Technology professionals interested in internet risk management

– Website owners and operators looking for a benchmark for their security

The quality of the survey depends on your participation. Click the following link to participate (it will open a Google form): https://goo.gl/forms/qMFTzdpRht
