Representatives from the Ministry of Science and Technology (MST), the US Embassy in Vietnam and US Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) met in Hanoi on November 7 to discuss international cooperation in Intellectual Property Rights (IPR).

The same day, the US Embassy, AmCham, the Vietnam Information Security Association (VNISA) and the Vietnam Computer Emergency Response Team (VNCERT) held their second meeting on the role of cyber-security in building the digitalised economy in Vietnam .

Earlier in September 2012, they teamed up in Hanoi to raise public awareness of emerging threats in cyberspace.

This discussion on cyber-security and safe computing drew experts from the tech industry and the government to help educate businesses and the public on how to mitigate the risks of online threats.-VNA
