The State Service of Special Communication and Information Protection of Ukraine published a bill that suggests introducing obligatory registration of all mobile subscribers in Ukraine, as well as registering equipment by International Identifiers. The bill was published on the website of the service.
The bill’s creators believe it will “enable to increase the level of national security and the country’s defence ability in case of cyber attacks on the objects of vital infrastructure, business and citizens. It will increase level of safety on receiving telecommunication services, services based on telecommunications, enable to use information-communication technologies (electronic services, e-commerce, electronic transactions etc.) vastly. Registering end-user equipment will facilitate reducing the amount of illegally obtained (stolen) end-user equipment”.
The bill suggests making a contract between the subscriber, the mobile operator and the telecommunication provider in written or any other form. The telephone companies will be obliged to collect personal data of all subscribers.
The communication service also suggests registering end-user equipment by International Identifiers. Other bodies will have three months since the bill’s promulgation to adapt their legislation. The bill was published on July 19.
