Govt planning to formulate data privacy protection law

Govt planning to formulate data privacy protection law

The government is planning to formulate a law regarding data privacy protection, State Minister for ICT Zunaid Ahmed Palak said Thursday.
 
He made the remark while inaugurating the Data Center Disaster Recovery Site in Jashore Border Guard Bangladesh-49 headquarters in the afternoon.
 
Important information from different government and private institutes can easily go outside the country through Facebook or Google and some other tech companies, he said.
 
Besides, a large amount of money is also getting out of the country, he said, adding that many economic institutes don't even have any backups.
 
"So, there is no alternative to data privacy protection law. Self-reliant digital Bangladesh will be made by securing data shortly," Palak said.
