TMT Legal Digest: "Key regulatory news in the TMT industry from June 2023 to February 2024" 

March, 2024 - Elizaveta Kostyuchenko

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

We would like to share with you an updated digest of the most significant laws and bills and regulatory innovations in the Technology, Media & Telecommunications sector for the period from June 2023 to February 2024, as well as trends in the future regulation of this industry.

The TMT industry is currently experiencing significant regulatory pressure with changes constantly being made for both its service providers and the customers who use their products. As such, the regulation of hosting providers’ operations in Russia indirectly extends to a large number of companies that use the services of foreign providers.

Given the growing role of information technology in the economy and the resulting threats to data security, there is an obvious trend towards regulating the TMT industry, searching for solutions to ensure the greater security and transparency of processes in the online environment, as well as increased liability for violations of requirements for individual players, such as social networks, hosting providers, people who work with biometric data, as well as the rules for working with information.

The changes affect both major players on the Russian and international markets, as well as small companies that are forced to provide virtually the same level of response.

This digest presents current legislative and regulatory changes in the TMT sector, namely in information technology, media content, advertising, personal data, telecommunications, e-commerce, retail, and antitrust regulation. It provides details about the main changes and initiatives over the past year, as well as the key findings of law enforcement practice in this regard.
