HCM City-based iSpace College of Information Technology has signed an agreement with Kaspersky Lab Viet Nam for cyber security training.

The Russian network security giant will set up a lab at the college for research, training and developing advanced information and cyber security subjects for IT students, especially cyber security students.

It will also send experts to instruct and provide training in cyber security to iSpace’s teachers and students.

The two sides will collaborate to study effective solutions for network defence, prevention of malicious codes and protection of companies and other organisations’ databases in Viet Nam.

Ngo Tan Vu Khanh, development director of Kaspersky Lab Vietnam, said the company would provide a variety of tools to help graduates apply in their cyber security jobs.

Nguyen Hoang Anh, rector of iSpace, said getting more tools and practical knowledge from a company such as Kaspersky Lab would improve students’ skills and help them get more job opportunities when they graduate.

"The tie-up with Kaspersky is one of the important activities in the school’s ’cyber knights’ training programme to help students learn how to review and overcome vulnerabilities and potential security risks in IT infrastructure of organisations and use security solutions to detect, analyse and advise on cyber problems," he said. — VNS
