Alexei Raevskii, CEO Zecurion, Developer protection of personal data, said the hype raised in connection with the entry into force of the new law, premature. It is reported Ridus .


From 1 January 2015 in the territory of the Russian Federation was to come into force the Law on the protection of personal data . However, the author of this idea – the accelerated entry into force of this rule – the State Duma deputy Vadim Dengin already stated that withdrew the initiative . Thus, the rate of working, as planned, in September 2016 the first.

Yes, and in any case, according to Alexei Raevski here and so take everything at once forbid, no one can. Yes, and never will. Too much while in the prepared standard “white spots”.

Initially it was thought that this law is directed against such well-known services such as Google, Facebook, Twitter and so on. G., However, these services either do not store any personal information, or store them in a minimum volume. ”

Although, of course, if the law entered into force yet since January 1, may lock some services, Apple would have existed.

In general, it is unclear whether the considered information transmitted authentication service Apple ID, personal data, as you can check in there without entering any personal information. In its simplest form for registration only requires an email address and password. ”

Oh, and about the most famous cloud services – Dropbox, Google Drive, SkyDrive, etc.. D. – You can say the same thing – they do not require you to enter personal data of users, and their functioning in Russia is not likely to be subject to regulation by the new law.
