According to the publication, earlier information about the leakage of data from the operator’s clients from the departmental catalog was leaked to the Network. According to reports, there is access to four LDIF files that collect data on customers from the Moscow, Central, Southern and Ural regions – more than 89 thousand mobile and about 11 thousand home numbers. It is known that about 200,000 logins of vimpelcom.ru users and 67,000 e-mail addresses in the beeline.ru domain got into the Network.

According to the new version of the law “On Personal Data”, which came into force in September this year, in the event of a data leak, the operator is obliged to notify Roskomnadzor within 24 hours, and after 72 hours – to provide the regulator with information on the results of the internal investigation. Among other things, the cause of the leak and the perpetrators must be indicated.

This is not the only significant leak that has occurred in Russia recently. In November, information was leaked to the Web from the Yappy platform, as well as from the Whoosh scooter rental service. Representatives of Yappy claim that we are talking about “irrelevant dumps of anonymized user data”and Whoosh admitted that the primary information of several million customers of the service became available to criminals.

In the foreseeable future, tightening of legislation related to the protection of personal data is possible. Back in early October, information appeared that the Ministry of Digital Transformation had finalized a bill on turnover fines for leaks of relevant information. Thus, it is proposed to fine the company executives who leaked 200,000-400,000 rubles if we are talking about a leak of information about 10,000-100,000 personal data subjects. An even tougher punishment is provided for individual entrepreneurs and legal entities – for them the fine should be 0.02% of the turnover, but not less than one million rubles.
