VLADIVOSTOK, August 1. /TASS/. The "Yarovaya Package" laws are primarily aimed at combating terrorism. It should be complied with but it is not yet clear how to do so, General Director for Russia and CIS of Orange Business Services telecom company Richard van Wageningen told TASS in an interview on Monday.
"The law combats terrorism, no doubts. We as the company will work according to the law. However, it is not yet clear what to store and where to store. It’s difficult to say so far," the expert said.
"Everyone laments very often when a new law comes into force in Russia. However, one should be aware such laws exist in many countries, particularly European ones. Europe is seriously discussing a new law on personal data storage. Russia is not unique in this regard," van Wageningen said.
From July 1, 2018, the "Yarovaya Package" laws will bind telecommunications operators to store data about reception, transmission, delivery and processing of voice and text messages, images, sounds and video for three years. The "heaviest" files - the content of messages, images, sounds and video - operators must store for six months. They are obliged to provide all this information on-demand to security services.
In addition to telecommunication operators, the law also obliges Internet companies to store certain data. In particular, they will be required to store information about data transmission facts and data about users for one year.
