Tl;dr In the past few months, we have seen one data breach after the other. As a result of these breaches, data of Indian users is available to any third party over the internet for nefarious use. We have addressed a representation dated 11th June 2021 to the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (“MEITY”). In the representation, we have provided a range of recommendations to prevent and provide redressal against data breaches. We have also affixed along with the representation, a set of concrete recommendations to Air India Limited by Mr Suman Kar. Mr Kar is the founder of Banbreach and has expertise in cybersecurity consulting, digital forensics and incident response.
