MOSCOW, February 1 (RAPSI) – The Federation Council has approved a bill tightening penalties for violation of rules on storage and processing of personal data, according to the statement of Russia’s upper house of parliament.

The bill submitted by Russian Government was adopted by the State Duma on January 27.

Currently, maximum amount of fine for violating personal data regulations is estimated at 10,000 rubles ($166). Acceleration of information and communication technology corresponds with increased number of violations of personal data legislation which is the reason for a new bill.

Authors of the bill propose to differentiate administrative violations in this sphere according to damage caused by a transgression.

In addition, the bill toughens punishment for such violations by increasing administrative fines. Maximum fine for a person will reach as high as 5,000 rubles ($83); 20,000 rubles ($333) for officials and individual entrepreneurs and 75,000 rubles ($1,250) for legal entities.

The legislation is to take effect on July 2017.
