Information technology infrastructure facilities and equipment used for the internet banking service provision would be required to be copyrighted and of clear origin, according to a draft circular recently released by the State Bank of Vietnam (SBV).
When they are no longer assisted by the manufacturers, or become outdated for installation of latest-version software, banks would have to make plans to upgrade or replace them as notified by the manufacturers.
