Event Description

In 2013 Decree 72 was a bit of a rude shock for anyone using IT in Vietnam. One year later few of the 10 implementation circulars have been issued and despite the public media furore having calmed down, this likely is only the calm before the storm as the issues have not gone away. Additionally some say the draft IT Services Decree is worse, yet not that many people really know about it.
If you are a company or an individual using or accessing the Internet, Facebook, Gmail and other stuff on the Cloud we invite you to an IT networking evening where we share with you the Top 5 IT regulations impacting you and your business right now and providing you with the opportunity to speak with experts and peers and (time allowing) hearing about the other IT regulations beyond the Top 5.
