10 tips on how to protect your personal data
20 million people are the number of Ukrainians whose personal data was stolen in 2020. Their phone numbers, personal passwords, and driver's licenses were merged in the anonymous telegram channel UA Baza BOT, where you could buy all the information for $10 thousand.

In Ukraine, work is underway to update the legislation on PD protection, which should be more progressive and more stringent in regulating this area than today's laws.
