Consumer protection

View this topic in
Consumer protection laws designed to ensure fair trade competition and the free flow of truthful information in the marketplace. The laws are designed to prevent businesses that engage in fraud or specified unfair practices from gaining an advantage over competitors and may provide additional protection for the weak and those unable to take care of themselves.

2013 6th International Conference on Information Management, Innovation Management and Industrial Engineering (ICIII)

This conference provides an idea-exchange and discussion platform for researchers and practitioners interested in information management, innovation management and industrial engineering. The topics will arrange from the technology management theories to the management practice methods and technology.


2013 Eleventh Annual Conference on Privacy, Security and Trust (PST)

Today new technologies and new applications will not be widely adopted until it can be demonstrated that the security of the underlying ICT infrastructure and the privacy of information being processed are both protected. Only then will users trust and therefore use these innovations and then, and only then, will the developers and society as a whole reap the benefits of the innovation. Without breakthroughs in Privacy, Security and Trust (PST) technology the "bad guys" will continue to thwart our best efforts to convince the public that cyber space is a safe place to do business. The annual Privacy, Security and Trust research conference has quickly established itself as a leading forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest challenges and solutions covering a wide range of PST topics. The PST conference is unique in its broad approach including examining the issues from both the research and practiceperspectives, encouraging multidisciplinary research, and fosterin
