Kochi: The Kerala High Court on Tuesday criticised the state government and dismissed its claim that data it shared with the US company Sprinklr is not sensitive. While hearing a petition, the division bench headed by Justice Devan Ramachandran observed that the information regarding the treatment and medical details of individuals are crucial.

 The court also asked the government whether it is incapable of handling the data of more than two lakh people, including Covid 19 patients and people under home quarantine. The HC also asked whether the government had its own IT wing.

 

The Bench directed the government to ensure that the medical data of people collected for the Sprinklr deal is secure. The government should take necessary measures to ensure that there is no data leakage, the court instructed. The division bench instructed the government not to upload data to Sprinklr until its safety and confidentiality are ensured.

Meanwhile, the government submitted before the court that no sensitive data affecting the personal security of individuals has not been transferred to the US company.

The HC has directed the government’s counsel to give a clarification regarding the privacy of data before April 24 when the case will be considered.
