The culture of online behavior needs major improvements if personal data are to be protected

It is impossible to protect user data with legislation alone. People need to be educated on how to behave online. That was the conclusion drawn by the participants in a roundtable titled “Regulation of the Collection, Storage and Processing of Data Using New Technologies” held at the Analytical Center the other day.

During the discussion the experts talked about the experience of which countries could be drawn upon when it comes to regulating personal data and the concepts that had already been put forward by the Competencies Center (Skolkovo Foundation) and approved by the Legislative Regulations Work Group of the Digital Economy autonomous non-profit organization.

Pavel Malkov, head of the State Governance Department of the Ministry for Economic Development of Russia, reminded those present that the draft law on publicly available data needed to be improved upon and submitted to the Cabinet of Ministers in the fourth quarter of this year.
