New administrative liability measures for violation of the legislation on personal data processing in Russia
On 27 January 2017, the State Duma passed in the final reading the bill on amendments to the Code of Administrative Violations (hereinafter - the 'Administrative Code'). The bill is aimed at enhancing the administrative liability for violation of the procedure for collection, storage, use or dissemination of information on citizens (personal data) established by the Russian Federation.
The bill is based on the law enforcement practice of Roskomnadzor in view of a significant increase in the number of violations in the area of personal data processing and applications from citizens and legal entities in this respect, on one hand, and on the disparity of fines and penalties stipulated in Article 13.11 of the Administrative Code for the respective violations, on the other hand.
