On the morning of October 30, 2023, British University Vietnam (BUV) collaborated with the Tien Phong newspaper, under the guidance of the Vietnam Students’ Association, to host the seminar “Ensuring Safety in the Digital Space for Students”. Valuable insights from experts were shared in the seminar, all aiming to create a safer digital environment for the youth in general and students in particular.

In his opening remarks, Mr. Phung Cong Suong, Deputy Editor-in-Chief of the Tien Phong newspaper, stated, “For the past 70 years, our mission has been to promote educational values among students, and protect the legal rights of students and young Vietnamese people abroad.” This mission sets the stage for the main purpose of the seminar: to disseminate and ensure cyber wellness of the younger generation.

Seminar “Ensuring Safety in the Digital Space for Students”

The seminar comes at a time when information technology has proliferated, making the internet an integral tool and environment for all Vietnamese citizens, with students especially reliant on it for work, research, and daily life. Alongside its benefits, the digital landscape presents numerous pitfalls, from fake news and scams to illegal activities that violate religious and ethnic norms. Students may face substantial risks without timely education and awareness campaigns.

Representing the student generation, Le Bao Ngoc Minh, an International Business Management student at BUV, shared insights into common dangers that youth are facing in the online space. Minh stated, “Students encounter three types of problems in the digital space: spam calls, data theft or fake social media accounts, and personal messages that attack the mental well-being of students. Dealing with personal attacks in messages is usually the most challenging, as students often face private messages that they may not be comfortable to share with their parents or teachers.”

Le Ngoc Bao Minh shared common risks for students in the digital space

During the seminar, Dr. Hamza Mutaher, a lecturer and expert from BUV, shared various methods to help students combat hidden threats in the digital world. He particularly emphasised the need for students to protect themselves by carefully considering the information they share publicly and avoiding any contribution to the spread of harmful or false information. Furthermore, he stressed the importance of collaboration between universities, government entities, and other organisations to educate students about self-protection from online dangers. Parents also play a vital role in this effort, as they need to pay more attention to their children’s emotional well-being and promptly address any issues as they arise.

Dr. Hamza Mutaher sharing advice and solutions in dealing with online threats

Dr. Mutaher also offered technical advice, including regular password changes, routine software updates, and thorough review of website rules before use.

In terms of BUV’s contributions, Dr. Mutaher noted that the university consistently offers courses to educate students on how to navigate the online world and protect themselves from potential risks. These courses enhance students’ awareness of online hazards and help them create a safer online environment for themselves and their families, making effective use of the digital space.

The seminar also featured insights from various experts from diverse organizations, all working together to find effective solutions to improve online safety for students. These experts included Assoc. Prof. Nguyen Anh Dung, Deputy Head of the Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Education and Training; Ms. Dinh Nhu Hoa, from the Authority of Information Security, Ministry of Information and Communication; Mr. Nguyen Nhat Linh, Member of the Executive Committee and Deputy Head of the Central Department of Propaganda and Education, Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union; and actress Thu Quynh.
