US Lawmakers Tell Tech Giants to Resist Vietnam’s New Cybersecurity Law

Google and Facebook was recently urged by seventeen lawmakers to resist Vietnam’s new cybersecurity law which many expect to give the country’s communist government more power to crack down on dissent.

The Congressional Vietnam Caucus told the execs of both companies to resist coercion to aid and abet censorship, and added that such are issues that need to be raised diplomatically and at the highest levels.

Jeff Paine, Managing Director of the Asia Internet Coalition (AIC), likewise said that the law created “great uncertainty” for Vietnam’s reputation as an investment destination.
