Cyber security is one of the most ignored areas when it comes to tech products. It's unfortunate that this issue doesn't get any sort of attention in India, mostly due to a lack of information to begin with. McDonalds India is apparently leaking 2.2 million users data. That in itself would be enough for a major lawsuit in any other country!
It's high time we have a 3rd party watch dog to ensure apps follow security protocols to protect user data.
Speaking of protecting user data, the Govt. doesn't seem to care about that either. They've denied the existence of any security loopholes in Aadhaar time and again. Yet, a simple Google search can give anyone access to all kinds of info about a person, including their Aadhaar number!
How much is your privacy worth?
