Data Localisation In India Could Be Risky: Facebook


Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said, “India’s data localisation demands are understandable but allowing it for one nation can trigger a demand from countries which are much more authoritarian and can misuse the citizens’ data and hence risky”.

“I think that… the motives matter and certainly, I don’t think that either of us would consider India to be an authoritarian country,” Zuckerberg responded to a question by why is it safe to store the data about Indian citizens in the US and not in India when they’re openly saying they care only about themselves.

This he said in a conversation with historian and author Yuval Noah Harari.
