Roskomnadzor recorded 27 cases of data leakage in 2023
Since the beginning of the year, 165 million records about Russians have got into the network.
Roskomnadzor has recorded 27 cases of personal data leakage since the beginning of this year, as a result of which 165 million records about Russians got into the network. This is reported TASS with reference to the press service of the department.
The department believes that hacker attacks were initiated by foreign intelligence services, as evidenced by the nature and scale of the hacks. Malefactors used vulnerabilities in the software, servers and telecommunication equipment, many of which were used for the first time, – told in RKN.
To prevent the leakage of personal data, Roskomnadzor proposes to prosecute those who sell data on the network and make appropriate changes to the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. The department also proposes to strengthen “specialized search activities” against cybercriminals and develop comprehensive measures to protect Russian services and counter hacker attacks.
In accordance with the new law, which came into force in September 2022, operators must inform Roskomnadzor about cases of compromise of personal data. Since then, the department has received 130 reports of leaks.
Roskomnadzor also recalled that in 2022 there were more than 140 cases recorded leaks of personal data of Russians, including data of users of food delivery networks, logistics companies and other organizations.
