How safe is Digital India ?
In September of 2015, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had photographed with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg during a Town Hall meeting at the huge headquarters of social media giants in Menlo Park, California.
But now Facebook is largely complicit in the data theft of plagiarism and Alam is that India is warning Mark Zuckerberg to take strong action, including action to send summons to misuse of data.
Zuckerberg had recently said that Facebook will ensure that its platform is not used to affect elections in any part of the world including India, but the US presidential election of 2016 and breaksight votes in Britain (separate from the European Union) Having seen the infiltration of social media platforms during voting in the wake of it, Minister can not be.
Is our country ready to stop the violation of data security or privacy of its citizens? According to top cyber law experts, India has missed a lot behind this issue.
Chief cyber expert Pawan Duggal told IANS:
“The issue here is how do we regulate mobile app providers, social media companies and intermediaries in terms of handling and processing user data? We do not have data protection law. We do not have any national law on cyber security and there is no national law on privacy. ”
The absence of these important laws has led to the promotion of cases of misuse of user data and unauthorized access by service providers. Duggal said, “Alam is that the service providers are taking the figures out of the country’s geographical limits, because the country is asleep. Once the data goes out of the country, the government gets over control over it. This has a detrimental effect on the protection of people’s data privacy and privacy. ”
He said that India should learn from the EU (EU) how to prepare a legal framework for the protection of the data. The EU has enacted the New Privacy Act, General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will be effective from May 25 this year and it will apply to enterprises and service providers around the world.
Following the four-year debate, the EU Parliament approved the law on April 14, 2016 and strict action would be taken against the companies not accepting it. However, India has published a white paper on the Data Protection Bill, but this law has not been made so far.
“India should not allow the data to be stored outside the country and should not impose a heavy penalty on companies that do not believe it, whether it is working in the country or working outside the country.”
