Trịnh Nguyễn – Thứ Năm 23/03/2023 21:49 (GMT+7)

VietTimes –  Sáng 23/3, Liên đoàn Thương mại và Công nghiệp Việt Nam đã tổ chức hội thảo về Dự thảo Luật Viễn thông (sửa đổi). Đây là một bộ luật được các đối tác nước ngoài quan tâm với mong muốn mở ra cơ hội cho họ.

Các đối tác nước ngoài rất quan tâm đến việc Việt Nam sửa đổi Luật Viễn thông

Theo ý kiến của bà Nguyễn Việt Hà, Phó Chủ tịch Hiệp hội Thương Mại Hoa Kỳ tại Hà Nội (AmCham Hanoi), một xu hướng trong ngành viễn thông đang được nhiều quốc gia trên thế giới quan tâm hiện nay đó là sự phát triển dịch vụ viễn thông qua vệ tinh.

Thiết bị giám sát hành trình “hành” ngư dân – Rào cản gỡ “thẻ vàng” – 7 kỳ

Thiết bị giám sát hành trình “hành” ngư dân – Rào cản gỡ “thẻ vàng”

Kỳ 1: Thiết bị giám sát hành trình của VNPT trục trặc như cơm bữa

Trong khi 700 tàu cá ở Bình Định thiệt hại do thiết bị trục trặc thì ngư dân Quảng Ngãi còn bị bỏ rơi sau khi lắp thiết bị giám sát hành trình của VNPT.

Mỗi thiết bị giám sát hành trình tàu cá có giá lắp đặt lến tới 23 – 25 triệu đồng, nhưng nhà mạng lại thiếu trách nhiệm trong sửa chữa, bảo hành gây khó khăn cho ngư dân. Ảnh: Trung Chánh.

Thiết bị giám sát hành trình tàu cá là giải pháp tối quan trọng để chống đánh bắt hải sản bất hợp pháp, khắc phục thẻ vàng IUU. 

Thời gian qua, thực hiện chỉ đạo của Chính phủ, Bộ NN-PTNT, các địa phương, ngư dân đã tích cực hoàn thiện việc lắp đặt thiết bị giám sát hành trình để quản lý quy củ, chặt chẽ, chống đánh bắt bất hợp pháp.

Nhưng, qua điều tra của Báo Nông nghiệp Việt Nam tại một số địa phương ven biển cho thấy, ngư dân, chủ tàu cá, cơ quan quản lý tại địa phương đang phải chịu đựng những bất cập mà thiết bị giám sát hành trình gây ra, điều đó vô hình chung ngăn cản tiến trình và quyết tâm khắc phục thẻ vàng IUU của Việt Nam.

Death threats, trolling and sexist abuse: climate scientists report online attacks


Survey highlights experiences of dozens of climate researchers who have endured online harassment related to their work.

In 2013, Richard Betts called the police because someone online threatened to string him up with piano wire. The threat happened after Betts, a climate scientist at the University of Exeter, UK, tweeted about the rising temperatures the world would experience the following year. This wasn’t the first time someone had responded negatively to his comments about climate change; nor would it be the last. And Betts isn’t alone.

survey by the international non-governmental organization Global Witness hints at the extent of online abuse faced by scientists working on climate topics worldwide, some of which takes a toll on their work or well-being.

Yuval Noah Harari: ‘I don’t know if humans can survive AI’

For the first time, we’ve invented something that takes power away from us, says the Israeli historian and author of Sapiens

Stories have always been vital to Yuval Harari, the Israeli historian-cum-philosopher. The unique capacity of our species to be bound and united by intangible narratives, even across oceans, was central to Sapiens, his mind-bogglingly popular chronicle of our species’ rise, which catapulted him to seer-like status after its publication in English nearly a decade ago. 
Perhaps that is why he is so profoundly concerned today about the rise of a challenger to our tale-telling mastery – artificial intelligence (AI).

Elon Musk warned in a new interview that artificial intelligence could lead to “civilization destruction,” even as he remains deeply involved in the growth of AI through his many companies, including a rumored new venture.

“AI is more dangerous than, say, mismanaged aircraft design or production maintenance or bad car production, in the sense that it is, it has the potential — however small one may regard that probability, but it is non-trivial — it has the potential of civilization destruction,” Musk said in a teaser clip Fox News shared of his interview with Tucker Carlson, which is set to air in two parts on Monday and Tuesday nights.

Scammers masquerading as banks steal money via SMS

Scammers masquerading as banks steal money via SMS

A fake website that masquerade as the Viecombank banking app. Photo by VnExpress/Luu QuyVietnamese citizens have been reporting fake text messages with user interfaces nearly identical to official apps and websites that ask recipients to provide bank information.

Bui Huyen from Hanoi said she nearly lost around VND280 million ($11,930) after receiving a scam text message from a number identified as “Vietcombank.”

The message came on Saturday last week, telling her that her VCB Digibank banking app had been logged into on an unknown device. The message provided a link to log into her account.

Huyen immediately clicked the link to secure her account because the text appeared on an official SMS thread from Vietcombank, so harbored no suspicions.

“The interface for logging in was identical to the app I often use, so I entered my account name and password as requested,” Huyen said.

Biden Signs Executive Order to Prohibit U.S. Government Use of Commercial Spyware that Poses Risks to National Security or Has Been Misused by Foreign Actors to Enable Human Rights Abuses

MARCH 27, 2023 White House

FACT SHEET: President Biden Signs Executive Order to Prohibit U.S. Government Use of Commercial Spyware that Poses Risks to National Security

  1. HOME

Presidential Directive Will Serve as a Cornerstone Initiative During the Second Summit for Democracy

Today, President Biden signed an Executive Order that prohibits, for the first time, operational use by the United States Government of commercial spyware that poses risks to national security or has been misused by foreign actors to enable human rights abuses around the world.

Commercial spyware – sophisticated and invasive cyber surveillance tools sold by vendors to access electronic devices remotely, extract their content, and manipulate their components, all without the knowledge or consent of the devices’ users – has proliferated in recent years with few controls and high risk of abuse.

The proliferation of commercial spyware poses distinct and growing counterintelligence and security risks to the United States, including to the safety and security of U.S. Government personnel and their families. U.S. Government personnel overseas have been targeted by commercial spyware, and untrustworthy commercial vendors and tools can present significant risks to the security and integrity of U.S. Government information and information systems.

Hosts on Venezuelan state-owned television station VTV have been touting positive news coverage about their country from “una agencia gringa” — an American news agency. “This information isn’t coming from VTV, it’s not coming from me … these are numbers from an American news outlet,” one host exclaimed while showing clips of English-speaking anchors reporting favorably on Venezuela hosting baseball’s Caribbean Series and the country’s tourism industry.

What is ZeroTrust Strategy?

TĐH: Traditional cybersecurity strategies are no longer sufficient for today’s cyberwar. The Zero Trust strategy is a new concept in cyberwar. To help understand this concept, I post here a paper by the US Department of Defense entitle “DOD Zero Trust Strategy.” This concept will involve not just DOD or military institutions, but also many private enterprises and individuals. Indeed, it involves the entire nation. I select the DOD presentation to post because, by nature of its job, DOD is probaly concerned about cybersecurity more than anyone else. Below is the Foreword of the DOD paper.


Download full paper >>


Our adversaries are in our networks, exfiltrating our data, and exploiting the Department’s users. The rapid growth of these offensive threats emphasizes the need for the Department of Defense (DoD) to adapt and significantly improve our deterrence strategies and cybersecurity implementations. Defending DoD networks with high-powered and ever-more sophisticated perimeter defenses is no longer sufficient for achieving cyber resiliency and securing our information
enterprise that spans geographic borders, interfaces with external partners, and support to millions of authorized users, many of which now require access to DoD networks outside traditional boundaries, such as work from home. To meet these challenges, the DoD requires an enhanced cybersecurity framework built upon Zero Trust principles that must be adopted across the Department, enterprise-wide, as quickly as possible as described within this document.

War Propaganda


From What Is Propaganda? (1944) By Ralph D. Casey (Published July 1944)

The Nazis prepared for war from the moment Hitler came into power in 1933. In the feverish building up of German striking power, they had the support of the professional military men. The Nazis not only produced the weapons of war; they geared their economy for the strain of a future conflict. They carried on political intrigues to promote their purposes. Their propaganda machine had long been a going concern when Hitler felt ready to strike at Poland, the first step in an ambitious plan to lay the world at his feet.

Military, economic, political, and propaganda weapons were forged for the fray. Britain and France and, soon after, other peaceful nations were compelled to forge them to resist the Nazi onrush.

Today’s war is four-dimensional. It is a combination of military, economic, political, and propaganda pressure against the enemy. An appeal to force alone is not regarded as enough, in the twentieth century, to win final and lasting victory. War is fought on all four fronts at once—the military front, the economic front, the political front, and the propaganda front.

To understand how this four-dimensional warfare has come about, we have to look at history. We have to go back to the rise of nationalism in the eighteenth century.

Before the American and French revolutions took place at the end of the eighteenth century, many armies fought in the pay of monarchies, such as the Bourbons, Hapsburgs, and Hohenzollerns, or of individual leaders. They were mercenary armies. They did not fight for patriotic motives. They did not fight for causes. They fought because fighting was their business. No fight, no pay!

WASHINGTON (AP) — Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is the deadliest conflict in Europe since World War II, and the first to see algorithms and TikTok videos deployed alongside fighter planes and tanks.

The online fight has played out on computer screens and smartphones around the globe as Russia used disinformation, propaganda and conspiracy theories to justify its invasion, silence domestic opposition and sow discord among its adversaries.

Now in its second year, the war is likely to spawn even more disinformation as Russia looks to break the will of Ukraine and its allies.
