In the last two years, Myanmar’s tourism industry has been hit by several security breaches, with dozens of sites identified as vulnerable to cyberattacks.
Now, the country is trying to improve its security posture, saying it will not tolerate a single attack on a tourism site.
But in recent weeks, there have been reports that some of the sites in the country’s north have been targeted by cybercriminals.
“The problem is that there are not many sites in northern Hlaing province that are not vulnerable to hacking.
But in Hlaings south and northeast, there are quite a few sites that are vulnerable,” said Sam Rok, the director of the Hlaesin State Cybersecurity Agency.
Rok, who is based in northern Yangon, said the government has begun to deploy an additional 50 security guards to the region, as well as other security personnel, to strengthen the countrys cyber defense.
The government is also working to beef up security measures at tourism sites across the country.
In recent months, security personnel have been patrolling the roads and streets, inspecting the equipment and working in groups to make sure the roads are safe, according to Rok.
A spokesman for Myanmar’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism, who asked not to be named, told the Associated Press that it is committed to protecting the country and has taken several steps to increase the country s security measures.
But there is no evidence that the attacks have affected tourism.
Rak said the problem with tourism sites is that they are often far from power lines and often close to farmland, so many visitors to the country have never visited the sites.
The tourism industry is growing by about 50 percent annually, according a report by the World Tourism Organization.
But many of the companies are struggling to pay for their security measures, as they rely heavily on tourism dollars to make ends meet.
For instance, in Hsiang, a major tourist destination, the tourism department received an average of about $50,000 in tourism revenue a year.
In 2014, the Hsiung County Tourism Administration received $3 million in tourism revenues from the Hluh-Laei-Baw, Hluan-Lang and Hlung provinces, but it spent $16.5 million on security and security-related expenses.
Some of the security measures are not working, Rok said, noting that there have also been some breaches of hotel reservations.
He said the Hsiao-Rong tourist village in Hsien-Lung province has been breached three times in the past two years.
A local resident has reported that the hotel has been defaced with a message that read: “The hotel has now been defamed,” Rok told AP.
The latest incident, which happened in late April, was reported by the Hui News Agency, a local news website, and the local police said they had found a hacker responsible for hacking the site.
The hotel was not able to provide information about the hacker, who was not identified.
In response to the recent security breaches in Hlouan, the local government has set up a special committee to work with the tourism industry to improve the security of sites, Roks said.
The Hlouk Valley, where many of Myanmar s most popular tourist sites are located, has also been the target of attacks.
In 2016, the head of the Tourism Ministry, Yang Hye-hwa, said that more than 70 percent of Hlucan village was compromised.
That same year, the National Security Bureau warned tourists against visiting Hluk Valley.
