Vietnam has major data leak problem, citizens suffer

An incoming call with an unknown caller from outside of Vietnam. Photo by VnExpress/Luu QuyMinh Huy, a university student in Ho Chi Minh City, said he and his family have been terrorized by phone calls demanding repayment of loans he never took.

Someone has been calling Huy repeatedly over the past month, saying he owed money with high interest that will balloon to tens of millions of dong (VND10 million= $427.26) if it is not paid back quickly. When he denied ever using the service, the caller brought out a screenshot of an apparent contract with accurate personal information like ID card numbers, phone numbers and email addresses, even relevant information on Huy’s family members.

“This is information I’ve shared with multiple services online when I signed up for various accounts, but I have never submitted them to any credit service,” Huy said.

Cyber slavery: inside Cambodia’s online scam gangs –

Illicit industry traffics thousands of victims from China through Southeast Asia

“The videos provide a window into the dark world run by transnational criminal networks able to smuggle people from China, through Vietnam and into Cambodia and Myanmar”

SHAUN TURTON, Contributing WriterSEPTEMBER 1, 2021 06:00 JST

PHNOM PENH — The first punch lands on the left side of the young man’s face, the second on the right.

Several more follow. Knees strike his stomach. He cannot defend himself, his hands are cuffed. His attacker, face outside the frame, has his fist wrapped in cloth.

He drags his victim by the lapels into the middle of the frame, faces him to the camera and tells him to speak.

“Dad, I’m in Cambodia, I’m not inside of China,” says the young man, through tears, his voice breaking and blood streaming from his nose. “I beg you, please send money.”

The ransom video, which was sent to the victim’s parents, was one of several shown to Nikkei Asia by Li*, a person who helps rescue human trafficking victims in Cambodia.

This ransom video supplied to Nikkei shows a handcuffed man being beaten with a stick while other victims watch in horror. 

Another video shows a shirtless man cuffed on the ground being beaten with a stick while two more captives, handcuffed to a nearby window grill, watch on in terror. In a third, a grounded man, a foot on his neck, writhes in pain as he is electrocuted with a Taser.

The videos provide a window into the dark world run by transnational criminal networks able to smuggle people from China, through Vietnam and into Cambodia and Myanmar.

German court rules YouTube could be accountable for illegal content

“We need to examine the full details of today’s ruling to better understand how it impacts our viewers and the platform,” a YouTube spokesperson told EURACTIV. [Michael Vi/Shutterstock]

Online video sharing platforms such as YouTube could be liable for content uploads that infringe copyrights if they fail to act immediately, according to a ruling from Germany’s top court on Thursday (2 June).

The ruling is part of a larger fight of the creative and entertainment industry against illegally uploaded material, where large online platforms play an important role. Even if third parties posted the uploads, online platforms could find themselves in court.

“We need to examine the full details of today’s ruling to better understand how it impacts our viewers and the platform,” a YouTube spokesperson told EURACTIV. 

According to Germany’s Federal Court of Justice, this would also apply to shared hosting services that stored data and provided access to online users.

The European Union is planning new legislation aimed at curbing the worst harms associated with artificial intelligence.

Europe's AI Act concept

MS TECH | NGA

It’s a Wild West out there for artificial intelligence. AI applications are increasingly used to make important decisions about humans’ lives with little to no oversight or accountability. This can have devastating consequences: wrongful arrests, incorrect grades for students, and even financial ruin. Women, marginalized groups, and people of color often bear the brunt of AI’s propensity for error and overreach. 

The European Union thinks it has a solution: the mother of all AI laws, called the AI Act. It is the first law that aims to curb these harms by regulating the whole sector. If the EU succeeds, it could set a new global standard for AI oversight around the world.

But the world of EU legislation can be complicated and opaque. Here’s a quick guide to everything you need to know about the EU’s AI Act. The bill is currently being amended by members of the European Parliament and EU countries. 

What’s the big deal?

The AI Act is hugely ambitious. It would require extra checks for “high risk” uses of AI that have the most potential to harm people. This could include systems used for grading exams, recruiting employees, or helping judges make decisions about law and justice. The first draft of the bill also includes bans on uses of AI deemed “unacceptable,” such as scoring people on the basis of their perceived trustworthiness.

Dữ liệu y tế Việt Nam trong thời đại số: Quyền riêng tư của chúng ta ở đâu?

TS – 30/11/2020 07:12 – Hảo Linh

Dữ liệu về sức khỏe của chúng ta hiện nay do những ai nắm giữ và khai thác, được lưu trữ và chia sẻ cho những đâu, chính chúng ta có được tiếp cận chúng không? Có lẽ là không. Buổi hội thảo “Chuyển đổi số và an toàn dữ liệu trong lĩnh vực y tế” do Hội Truyền thông số Việt Nam tổ chức vào ngày 18/11 cho biết rằng: trong gần 20 năm đẩy mạnh “chuyển đổi số”, số hóa các hoạt động trong lĩnh vực y tế, nhà nước chưa có quy định nào về quyền của chủ thể dữ liệu. Nói cách khác, chúng ta chưa có quyền gì đối với những dữ liệu về sức khỏe của chính chúng ta và do chúng ta góp phần tạo ra.

Facebook, Meta, Metaverse: Cuộc chạy trốn khủng hoảng đạo đức?

Khi Mark Zuckerberg tuyên bố Facebook sẽ chính thức đổi tên thành Meta giữa những tố cáo của Frances Haugen, một cựu kỹ sư dữ liệu của Facebook, về bằng chứng cho sự tắc trách của công ty này xung quanh một chuỗi những bê bối về chính trị – xã hội, giới quan sát công nghệ không khỏi cảm thấy bi quan cho sự khủng hoảng đạo đức của Zuckerberg nói riêng, và của tập đoàn mạng xã hội do Zuckerberg đứng đầu nói chung.

– Việt Nam là một trong 5 nước có tốc độ tăng tiêu thụ rượu bia cao nhất thế giới, theo báo cáo Lancet.  Ông đánh giá thế nào về thực tế này?

– Trước năm 1990, hầu hết rượu bia được tiêu thụ ở các nước thu nhập cao, trong đó châu Âu có mức sử dụng cao nhất. Tuy nhiên, thực tế này đã thay đổi đáng kể từ năm 1990. Lượng sử dụng rượu bia đã giảm ở hầu hết các nước châu Âu trong khi tăng đáng kể ở một số quốc gia có thu nhập trung bình và thu nhập thấp, như Trung Quốc, Ấn Độ và Việt Nam.

Big Tech’s attention economy can be reformed. Here’s how.

The business model is doing irreparable harm to society. But there is an alternative, and we don’t need to destroy the tech giants to get there.

by Tristan Harrisarchive page

technologyreview – January 10, 2021attention economy illoMS TECH | GETTY

This week a violent mob mounted the biggest attack on the Capitol, the seat of American democracy, in more than 200 years, driven by the false belief that the presidential election had been stolen. The chief author of that claim was President Donald Trump, but the mob’s readiness to believe it was in large part a product of the attention economy that modern technology has created.

News feeds on Facebook or Twitter operate on a business model of commodifying the attention of billions of people per day, sorting tweets, posts, and groups to determine which get the most engagement (clicks, views, and shares)—what gets the strongest emotional reactions. These commodifying attention platforms have warped the collective psyche. They have led to narrower and crazier views of the world.

Bans on Parler and Trump Show Big Tech’s Power Over Web Conversation

bloomberg.com

As Facebook Inc. and Twitter Inc. banished users and groups supporting the violent mobs at the U.S. Capitol last week — including President Donald Trump himself — downloads surged for a less restrictive social media app called Parler. But in an effort to prevent further riot organizing, Google Inc. and Apple Inc. booted Parler from their app stores, and Amazon.com Inc. shut off its web services.

“We will not cave to pressure from anti-competitive actors!” John Matze, Parler Inc.’s chief executive officer, said on his site Friday. “We WON’T cave to politically motivated companies and those authoritarians who hate free speech!”

In reality, Matze doesn’t have much choice. His free-speech-centric network, where some extremists turned to rally insurgents and organize future uprisings, was deemed an “ongoing and urgent public safety threat” by Google. Apple quickly rejected as insufficient a Parler plan to moderate its content. Amazon employees asked that the web giant “deny Parler services until it removes posts inciting violence, including at the Presidential inauguration.” Amazon plans to shut down the service at midnight Sunday, according to Matze.

How COVID-19 has pushed companies over the technology tipping point—and transformed business forever

In just a few months’ time, the COVID-19 crisis has brought about years of change in the way companies in all sectors and regions do business. According to a new McKinsey Global Survey of executives,1 their companies have accelerated the digitization of their customer and supply-chain interactions and of their internal operations by three to four years. And the share of digital or digitally enabled products in their portfolios has accelerated by a shocking seven years.2 Nearly all respondents say that their companies have stood up at least temporary solutions to meet many of the new demands on them, and much more quickly than they had thought possible before the crisis. What’s more, respondents expect most of these changes to be long lasting and are already making the kinds of investments that all but ensure they will stick. In fact, when we asked executives about the impact of the crisis on a range of measures, they say that funding for digital initiatives has increased more than anything else—more than increases in costs, the number of people in technology roles, and the number of customers.To stay competitive in this new business and economic environment requires new strategies and practices. Our findings suggest that executives are taking note: most respondents recognize technology’s strategic importance as a critical component of the business, not just a source of cost efficiencies. Respondents from the companies that have executed successful responses to the crisis report a range of technology capabilities that others don’t—most notably, filling gaps for technology talent during the crisis, the use of more advanced technologies, and speed in experimenting and innovating.3 Tiếp tục đọc “How COVID-19 has pushed companies over the technology tipping point—and transformed business forever”
