The Ministry of Digital Development creates a fund for payments to Russians affected by data leaks


In Russia, they may begin to financially compensate for cases of leakage of personal data of citizens, informsKommersant“.

According to Kommersant’s sources, the Ministry of Digital Transformation is currently discussing with a number of large IT companies the possibility of creating a fund, through which Russians will be able to receive payments if they are victims of database leaks. It is planned to fill it with funds received as fines for leaks.

The Ministry of Digital Development confirmed that they are working on a compensation mechanism.

“It is necessary to determine how the volume will be calculated, under what conditions it will be possible to qualify for payments, and other details,” the department added.


In May, it became known that amendments were going to be made to the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation, which would allow companies to be fined 1% of their annual turnover for data leakage and 3% in case of hiding the problem.

The bill began to be developed after large-scale spring database leaks at “Rostelecom“, SDEKAYandex.Food“, Delivery Club and other large Russian companies.
