In Russia, 56% of applications to the court under articles of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation concerning violations of the security of personal data end in punishment, according to the specialists of InfoWatch.
In 32% of cases, the plaintiff is refused to initiate proceedings. As a rule, due to the expiration of the statute of limitations of the offense or due to the lack of corpus delicti.
The remaining 12% falls on the return of documents to the applicant, transfers to other authorities and other decisions, the results of which are unknown. The company obtained such statistics by analyzing more than 2 thousand records in the state automated system of the Russian Federation “Justice” (GAS “Justice”) for 2019 and 2020.
InfoWatch reviewed cases under Articles 13.11-13.14 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation, which include, among other things, personal data leaks and violations in the field of information security. From more than 2 thousand selected records for detailed analysis, the company identified 270 unique offenses, since only they were actually associated with the problems listed above.
