Under the Ministry of Education and Training’s Circular No.46, students from the 10th grade to the 12th grade will be introduced fundamental notions in this area, including cyberspace and cyber security, as well as contents of the cyber security law.

High schools across the nation will begin teaching cybersecurity from the 2021-2022 academic year.

The course will help raise students’ awareness of cyber-attacks, fake news and malware attacks.

According to Director of the ministry’s Department of Secondary Education Nguyen Xuan Thanh, the move aims to develop students’ digital capacity in accordance with the UNESCO’s Digital Literacy Global Framework.

He also emphasized the important role of cyber security education at schools in the context of rapid digitalization, and popular application of IT into teaching and studying.
