The head of the State Duma Committee for Information Technologies Leonid Levin appealed to Roskomnadzor with a demand to punish the perpetrators of Google Docs file leakage through Yandex. As reported by RNS, the deputy considers responsible not the search engines in the event, but the companies whose documents were placed in open access.

According to Levin, “Yandex” is not to blame for the leak, since it is “a robot that finds everything that is not encrypted.” Companies must ensure the security of personal data.

Here we can clearly see the fact that, from my point of view, based on the open information that I have from the media, when the legal entities that process the data of third parties did not comply with the issues of data storage, and this is a direct issue of Roskomnadzor, which should , of course, to conduct a thorough investigation and punish the perpetrators.

The deputy added that in the event that after the inspection of Roskomnadzor the companies’ fault is confirmed, administrative fines for the information leakage of employees are awaiting them.

In early July, the issuance of “Yandex” found documents created in the Google Docs service and unprotected by the privacy settings. The company said that these are files whose owners have allowed access via a hyperlink. While the loophole worked, users found passwords, corporate files and personal data.
