Nowadays new terms have popped up like E-Commerce, E-Governance, Q-Commerce
and if future new terms would pop-up like E-Family, G-Relation, E-Space, E-Tour,
etc.. Great everything is coming virtual. Government, Educational Institutes,
Large and Small Business Houses, Banks, Legal Offices are becoming virtual and
due to Corona Pandemic has forced everyone to be virtual.
Personal and Sensitive Data
Daily millions of Indian Citizens are creating, uploading, transmitting personal
and sensitive data on this so called E-(....) websites. Online Payment is a
major activity carried out on the Internet where debit card, credit card
payments are provided as Input. Business related sensitive information are
uploading and forwarding. Chatting is major messaging activity. All this online
activities uploads personal and sensitive data on large scale by Indian people.
Social Media Platforms
On Social Media Platforms like WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, Linked-In, etc
capture all this personal and sensitive data with no liability for data loss or
data robbery. Our current Legal Law and Acts (For Example Information Technology
Act 2000, etc) have exempted this so called intermediaries
from such liability
and online offences carried out by hackers using personal and sensitive data
collected by this Social Media Platforms. Current Legal Law doesn't protect
data. In this Act's few offences not very clear are defined and punishment are
given, mostly compensation for the loss.
Stand taken by Social Media Platforms is that they provide only online platform
and auto functions that run in the background not visible for common users, for
performing data functions like Publishing, Forwarding, Updating data. This auto
functions automatically run in the background but every user have to initiate it
from their end, so it's user choice. So this platforms are not held liable by
our Indian Law.
So here the user is liable, if their data is misused by the dark
web because he himself has uploaded his personal data, sensitive data and photos
and he himself has initiated to Publish or transmit the data and are not forced
by the platforms.
Deep inside in the dark coding of this virtual social platforms there must be
loopholes that must be reading user personal and sensitive data and transmitting
it to an unknown location outside the Country that too automatically and without
user intervention, hidden from outside.
In future this data will be used to destroy personal, professional life of an
Individual, crashing the economy of the country, hit share market, drain bank
accounts of individual citizens..Just imagine the future upcoming E-Pandemic
will be like
Within few seconds thousands of bank accounts will become empty. After every
minutes you will hear that next thousands of bank account got hacked.
A virtual attack on online business websites within seconds each and every
business website will show different contents. This is possible for hackers by
using your business sensitive data that you have uploaded and transmitted on the
social media platform.
In a Hollywood movie it was shown that small missile hitting the perfect target
in a busy market place fired by the villian by giving the missile unique
identity and name of the target person. One day small missiles will come outside
with names on it... It's not a joke...Just Imagination.
Means E-Pandemic will be disastrous for country like India. To destroy, Control,
Clean or recover for physical objects takes hours, days and months, but for
Virtual Data Loss or Robbery, it requires seconds of which only 1% or 2% can be
Value of Data
Value of Virtual Data on the Internet is too high that cannot be measured in
money. Each and every Indian Citizens personal and sensitive data must have
already crossed the Indian border. Someone unknown must be holding the data to
an unknown location in digital format and can use it to spread E-Pandemic if
All Indian Citizen personal and sensitive data is already in the hands of the
dark web crawlers but it's necessary to protect our future generation personal
and sensitive data from crossing the Indian Boundaries and thus save them from
Data Protection Law
Enacting Data Protection Law and other relevant laws are so crucial and urgent
need of the seconds. Restricting storage of data in the country and throughly
debugging social media platforms internal code and functions from time to time.
