Samsung to Ensure Compliance With Cert-In Rules
Devdiscourse, July 7, 2022
Korean technology giant Samsung on Friday said it will comply with the Cert-In directive that has proposed VPN services, cloud service providers etc to maintain logs of their system for six months and details of subscribers for five years. Around a dozen international industry bodies including BSA, have opposed the proposed cybersecurity rules.
The 11 international bodies -- including Information Technology Industry Council (ITI), BSA - The Software Alliance, Cybersecurity Coalition, Digital Europe, and US-India Business Council -- in a joint letter had said that India's new directive, which mandates reporting of cyberattack incidents within six hours and storing users' logs for 5 years, will make it difficult for companies to do business in the country.
