HA NOI (VNS) — International experiences in the implementation of electronic records and data were shared at a seminar titled "Authenticity of Electronic Records" held in Ha Noi yesterday.
The seminar, organised by the Department of State Records and Archives, was part of a two-day annual conference of the Southeast Asia Regional Branch of the International Council on Archives (SARBICA).
Presentations and reports by experts from seven countries including Germany, Japan and New Zealand were introduced to around 150 participants at the seminar.
Deputy Minister of Home Affairs Nguyen Duy Thang said that electronic records were playing an increasingly important role in the management of data, but there was always a potential risk of information being modified.
"This seminar has contributed to exchanges between countries to address existing issues regarding electronic records," he said.
Viet Nam had developed a fundamental system of law and regulations on the implementation and management of electronic records since 2011, State Records and Archives Department Director General Vu Thi Minh Huong said.
"Our department has submitted a national plan on electronic records and data to the Ministry of Home Affairs, to put theory into action," she added. — VNS
