India’s Latest Cybersecurity Directions Burden Businesses Far and Wide

By Lakshmi Gopal, Muciri Law, PLLC

On April 28, 2022, the Indian Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology’s (MeitY) Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) issued new Directions related to ongoing augmentation of India’s cybersecurity regime. The 2022 Directions will come into effect in June, sixty days after their issuance, and will extend to entities merely offering services to users located in India. Noncompliance with the Directions is punishable with imprisonment extending to one year, a fine of one hundred thousand rupees (approximately 1,250 USD), or both. The Directions have been met with strong resistance from the business community, with companies threatening to pull out of India because the Directions violate fundamental principles of rule of law.
