Another tightening of control over clientsmobile networks in Russia will lead to the need for operators to transfer personal information of users to Roskomnadzor. In accordance with the draft of the new Law, which appeared on the federal portal of draft regulatory legal acts, the Ministry of Digital Industry should oblige mobile operators to provide Roskomnadzor with sufficiently detailed data.
The regulator will have at its disposal not onlypassport data of Russians with the last name, data on the place of residence, date of birth and passport details, but also information on the duration and time of the call, the amount of data transferred in SMS and MMS. Additionally, Roskomnadzor will also receive information about entrepreneurs and legal entities, as well as information about who the call was made to or information was transmitted to.
The main reason for the need to introduce a newsystem of total control, according to the developers of the bill, is the fight against "gray" SIM cards, which are issued to entrepreneurs and legal entities and then distributed free of charge in places of mass stay of citizens. The project notes that the holders of such cards do not sign contracts and can make fraudulent calls, including those about “false mining”.
Currently, the bill is being discussed andOperators have already called the array of information required by Roskomnadzor, redundant and may lead to a violation of the secrecy of negotiations. Operators hope to achieve a “balanced solution”.
