With 24/7 monitoring solutions, businesses can respond promptly to abnormalities, providing early warnings to help organizations and businesses react quickly to threats and attacks, minimizing damage and system downtime.

In the advisory issued, the Department of Information Security also recommends that organizations should conduct checks and evaluations to ensure the security of information systems within their management scope. In case of identifying risks, vulnerabilities, or weaknesses, immediate measures should be taken, especially for systems storing and processing personal information and data.

The units are also required to develop implementation plans to complete information system security regulations according to levels, ensuring that 100% of operating systems are approved for safety levels no later than September 2024. Organizations need to assess the security of their systems and implement remedial measures as soon as vulnerabilities are detected. Additionally, plans for implementing information system security according to levels and enhancing monitoring and protection capabilities need to be developed. Furthermore, there should be contingency plans and backups of critical data to facilitate recovery in case of attacks. (According to Tuoi Tre Newspaper)
