The directive is also expected to contribute to creating digital trust and ensuring the safety of Vietnam's cyberspace.
Digital platforms have made important contributions to the national digital transformation, and the development of the digital economy and digital society. However, information and data leakage on digital platforms still occurs on an increasingly large scale.
The spread of fake news, information that violates the law, especially on cross-border digital platforms, has caused a lot of negative impacts.
Therefore, the ministry requires businesses that manage digital platforms to develop the platforms that are able to protect themselves and have tools to process and remove information that violates the law.
In particular, owners of digital platforms must implement solutions to ensure information security and publicize measures to handle and protect personal information, and collect personal information only with the consent of the users.
