Vietnam was hit by 498 cyberattacks in April, down 46.9 per cent year-on-year and 5.1 per cent against March, figures from the Ministry of Information and Communications show.
This is the second month in a row the number of cyberattacks has fallen.
The country detected 3,944 cyberattacks from January to April.
Vietnam ranks 49th globally in terms of number of online attacks.
The number of cyberattacks is on a downwards trend due to the country’s efforts in creating a secure cyberspace and the investment of organizations and businesses in information security, according to the National Cyber Security Center (NCSC).
The government issued a national cyber security strategy to 2025 with a vision towards 2030 last year in response to cyberspace challenges.
