Late March 2022, the largest crypto hack in history targeted the Ronin Network, a blockchain that supports the popular video game Axie Infinity. Hackers made off with about $US625 million worth of Ethereum and USDC, two cryptocurrencies. The attacked company, Sky Mavis, later joined forces with top security experts, including CrowdStrike and Polaris Infosec, to prevent such cyber security incidents from happening again.
This, the world’s largest crypto attack in history, happened here in Vietnam.
Vietnam is no exception to cyber risk as the country’s digital economy is expected to reach $US43 billion by 2025 (*). Along the way, Vietnam has obviously been vulnerable to many dangerous, complicated, and large-scale cyberattacks.
In this hybrid seminar, you will be updated with the current state of cybersecurity in Vietnam, as well as how to be prepared before and after a cyberattack. Also, you’ll be briefed on key considerations regarding the implementation of Vietnam’s Cybersecurity Law, Decree 53.
In the panel discussion, our key-note speakers, Tin Nguyen, (ISC)2 HCM City Vice-President, Ex-Marine and Special Agent of FBI, CEO of Polaris Infosec, Robert Tran, EY Vietnam Cyber & Technology Risk Leader, President of (ISC)2 HCM City Chapter, Michael Beckman, EY Vietnam Law Leader and Thach Thi Cam Tran, Senior Manager, EY Law Vietnam, will address key issues participants face in their business activities.
Join us in this instrumental event on cybersecurity in Vietnam.
