Russia Mulls Larger Fines for Tech Firms
Sources have divulged last week that Russia may be considering harsher fines for tech companies that violate the country’s cyber laws.
The Kremlin, however, refused to comment on the matter. Vadim Ampelonsky, a representative from Russia’s tech and communications regulator, Roscomnadzor, likewise said that they will not be able to comment as the agency is not involved in drafting the laws.
Meanwhile, the sources who leaked the information reportedly works for a Russian technology firm. Another one is at a foreign tech company and the third works for an industry lobby group.
