Cybersecurity is not the biggest concern of businesses

In the context of IT development, many businesses actively grasp new technologies to serve their business but have not yet paid attention to the problem. securitynetwork security.

Mr. Nguyen Son Thuy, CEO of Indochina Unique Tourist shared with Vietnamnet that this business still poses the problem of hackers destroying the company’s website, but network security is not the most concern.

“We mainly store data on the company’s server system, so network security is not a concern for our company. I have not seen it affect the work or the brand of the company.”said Mr. Thuy.

CEO Nguyen Son Thuy also shared more about how he recently carried out a research project on digital transformation at travel agencies in the Central region. A survey of nearly 100 small and medium-sized tour operators showed that businesses consider the risk of network security not as serious, but the biggest barrier is the difficulty in initial costs and application. digital technology.

“It is possible that these businesses have not yet interacted with large online customers, or if there are problems, they can be resolved well. With our own company, in the near future, there will be an online tour platform, building big data with customers, so we are quite worried about security. But currently, the risk cannot be fully assessed because we are still running a test of a new online tour and a new form of organization, so we do not know the reality of the online world as well as security and cyber security.”Mr. Thuy shared.

In addition, due to the specificity of the business field, system security and content security are extremely important to avoid hackers from entering the system, attaching misleading, illegal, and contrary to fine traditions to the websites. products, affecting users”Mr. Le Hoang Thach emphasized.

“For businesses, we have our own team of engineers and do not hire outside technicians, applying the latest security technologies to ensure network safety, content security and system security, avoiding affect the business of the company”Mr. Thach said.

Thus, in order to avoid the risk of network insecurity, organizations and businesses need to make quick changes and effective response measures, focusing on protecting information security more than before. , especially with some sophisticated phishing attacks.

“Not using unlicensed software that is not regularly updated leads to a constantly unprotected computer, especially when companies now allow employees to use personal devices to handle work. . Enterprise organizations providing services to end users need to have measures to protect and prevent attacks for both businesses and users.”added Mr. Ngo Minh Hieu, a cybersecurity expert.
