The Ministry of Digital Transformation submitted to the State Duma Committee on Information Policy, IT and Communications two revisions that tighten the work with personal data.

The first document of turnover fines in the amount of 5-500 million rubles for companies that allowed information releases. The second introduces criminal liability for the theft and sale of such data wood.

In the second case, we are talking about changes in Articles 272, 273 and 274 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, relating to illegal access to information and the spread of viruses.

Individuals will be fined from 300,000 to 2 million rubles. The punishment is also applied in the form of compulsory freedom, depending on the onset of the term, up to 6 years, attracting conviction – up to 10 years.

Experts believe that data merchants on the dark web are gaining an opportunity.

Criminal liability is unlikely to affect merchants on the dark web – shady forums assume the anonymity of all participants.

After the adoption of the first sentence under the new rule, the value of insider data will certainly increase.
