“We help ensure that business activities comply with personal data legislation, develop and organize a procedure for working with personal data and protecting it.”
Currently, Russia has a number of legislative acts aimed at protecting personal data.
In accordance with Russian law, all companies and private entrepreneurs are obliged to take a set of measures to protect the personal data of their employees and other persons whose personal data they process.
If a company or an entrepreneur collects, processes or transfers personal data of individuals as part of their commercial activities (for example, banks, recruitment agencies, travel companies, outsourcing companies), they are the operators of personal data and are obliged to notify Roskomnadzor about the processing of personal data. In addition, with respect to personal data, operators are obliged to take certain actions aimed at protecting them:
- develop local regulations governing the procedure for working with personal data;
- train staff and familiarize them with the requirements of the legislation on the protection and processing of personal data;
- provide the company with conditions for working with personal data;
- to provide technical protection of personal data during their processing in information systems.
In accordance with Russian law, personal data of Russian citizens must be stored on the territory of Russia. In this regard, international companies with offices in Russia and transferring personal data abroad need to pay special attention to the organization of work with personal data in order to avoid risks associated with violation of legislation on personal data.
Violation of the procedure for processing personal data may be the basis for the emergence of labor and civil disputes or inspections by regulatory state bodies. For violation of legislation in the field of personal data protection, civil, administrative and criminal liability is provided.
Companies do not always have the opportunity to independently ensure the protection of personal data. The correct organization of the protection of personal data in a company is a rather laborious process that requires the involvement of significant administrative resources and the work of professionals with practical experience in organizing the procedure for processing and protecting personal data.
