Control over the processing of Russian citizens’ personal data is tightened

Since September 2015, both foreign and Russian companies have been required to use databases located in Russia to process Russian citizens’ personal data (PD) (the so-called data localization rule).

In 2016 the regulator has been more active in checking compliance with the data localization rule. Even some foreign companies that do not have offices in Russia fall within the area of the regulator’s interest.
