Congress MP Karti Chidambaram writes to MeitY about the EPFO data leak

The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) and Union Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw have received a letter from Congress MP and member of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Information Technology Karti Chidambaram on the EPFO data leak.

“Between January and June 2022, India ranked second in the world in terms of data breaches,” Chidambaram wrote in his letter to Vaishnaw. The privacy of Indian residents is in danger since there is no data protection law. Chidambaram demanded a quick inquiry into the EPFO data leak, as well as the implementation of a tiered security compliance structure and a requirement that data fiduciaries notify consumers in the event of a data breach.
