- We undertake research and studies for our clients on the most cutting edge data privacy topics.
- Here are a few examples:
- EU-VIETNAM MUTRAP III (Multilateral Trade Assistance Project III): multilateral trade assistance project funded by the European Union to support the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Viet Nam (“MOIT”) on Studies and Researches for Drafting a New Decree on E-Commerce. We wrote a report focused on the analysis and assessment of the regulations aimed to protect the rights of consumers in selected countries (US, EU and China) in the context of e-commerce activities. We also examined existing mechanisms for dispute settlement in e-commerce transactions in those countries and their approach to cross-border dispute settlement. The activity also aimed to provide MOIT with inputs for the formulation of specific provisions on certain aspects of e-commerce, such as electronic contracting, electronic payment, personal information protection, data security, and regulation of special e-commerce business models. The mission’s general objective was to support MOIT in improving the regulation of E-Commerce through the production of a new Draft Decree.
- HTTPSNow.org Project: we worked for Access on this project, a three-part campaign for web-surfing security, including updated tools for users to protect their web browsing, an Internet-wide survey of the state of HTTPS, and help for site operators in implementing HTTPS. “HTTPS Now” is its educational website which aims to teach internet users about HTTPS, the protocol that encrypts your web browsing traffic and provides a basic level of security against hackers, identity theft, and other threats to your privacy.
