Protection of personal data of users may be assigned to Roskomnadzor.


In the last few years the problem of security of users ' personal data has attracted much more attention than before. The fear is not just government spying – the commercial and political organizations are also very interested in obtaining information of this kind. In this regard, the government intends to protect Russians from surveillance from the businesses and political parties, according to "Izvestia".

Based on a roadmap developed by a subgroup of "the sovereignty" under the administration of President protection of personal information of Russians may engage in Roskomnadzor. According to the head of the subgroup Ilya Massukh, he discussed this issue with representatives of the Department, however, about any agreements so far.

Currently in Russia, the work of companies with personally identifiable information is governed by the law "On personal data". According to the law, these include data allowing to identify a person – a surname, a name and a photo. However, users also leave online the so-called digital footprints to find out their preferences, habits, political views and much more. Treatment of this kind of information is not regulated, so different companies collect and sell it to interested parties (such as advertisers).
