SnTHosting urges MeitY to withdraw CERT-In directions

On April 28, 2022, the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) issued Directions under Section 70B of the Information Technology Act, 2000 regarding preventing, responding and reporting cyber incidents. These Directions will become effective on June 27, 2022. SnTHosting, a VPN service provider, has addressed legal representation to MeitY seeking recall of the Directions as they compel a range of entities, including SnTHostings, to surveil their users and collect their personal data, and mandate them to make such data available to CERT-In on demand. IFF has provided legal support in drafting the representation.
