HCM City’s Department of Information and Communications and the State-owned Sai Gon Industry Corporation (CNS) on Sunday opened the new Security Operation Centre (SOC).

Speaking at the launching ceremony, Deputy Chairman of the city People’s Committee Le Thanh Liem said the centre is one of the main four pillars of the project to build a smart city from 2017 to 2020, with a vision to 2025.

“Ensuring network safety and security is considered a top priority task,” he said.

Nguyen Hoang Anh, chairman of the Board of Members of CNS, said the key task of the centre is to ensure information safety and cybersecurity for ICT infrastructure and important database systems at all department, branches and State-owned corporations.

It will be expanded later to all businesses and organisations in the city and the country.

The centre will also provide information security services and other products to domestic and foreign markets.

It will collect information related to internet protection, security threats and vulnerability of partners and suppliers, and will give quick warnings about information security risks to organisations and units.

“The centre will support the city in enhancing State management of network security,” Anh said.

Liem urged the department to improve the IT ecosystem and create detailed regulations for the operation of the SOC, and regulations on coordination, administration and supervision.

The department must quickly complete investment procedures for projects in the smart city development plan and submit them to the city’s People's Council for approval, he said. — VNS
