Cyber Fraud Alert: 200 crore fine, jail for data theft, online tracking! Read

New Delhi: In a fast digital country like India, cases of online fraud are increasing rapidly. One of the reasons is also an effective data protection law. Because of this, tech companies use consumer data indiscriminately without permission. But maybe the face will change now as now the central government has become cautious about the security of consumer data.

The government brings new rules

The central government brings a new rule in the Personal Data Protection Act. The government will introduce a new data protection law at the upcoming winter session of parliament. The government says the new bill will prove effective in preventing data misuse.

Explain that Minister of State for Electronics and IT Rajeev Chandrasekhar has said that the Data Security Act will end misuse of customer data.

Because in the new rule there will be punitive measures for misuse of data, which was not the case in the earlier draft law on data protection. In the new bill, companies found guilty of data theft and online tracking can be fined Rs 200 crore and jailed.

During the investigation in America, Google said it tracked users by misleading them because of this, Google was fined $392 million.

No one will be able to do online tracking

Google allegedly tracks user data for targeted advertising. According to experts, location tracking data is considered the most sensitive and is suspected of being misused. Google shares a limited amount of location tracking data.

The US Attorney General has found that Google has been violating state consumer protection laws since at least 2014 by misleading consumers about its location tracking practices.
