These individuals and organizations include providers of technical solutions, real estate brokers, banking staff and those who can access the portals of education organizations, securities companies and hospitals, Thanh Nien Online newspaper reported.

The Ministry of Industry and Trade is consulting with the relevant agencies on a proposal to build a Government decree on personal data protection. According to the ministry, the trading of private information is rampant in cyberspace.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Public Security said that the current legal system is not strict enough in addressing violations related to the trade of private information.

Some entities have collected the information of their customers and transferred it to a third party. Some enterprises have directly gathered customers’ information for analysis and trade.

They typically sell lists of names of officials, including those working for police, military and tax agencies; Internet users; students; teachers; and parents as well as information on banking transactions and business registrations.

The information may be provided by the internal employees of agencies, or traders collect private information using malware. SGT
