Data breach allegations: RBI orders forensic audit of Mobikwik systems

The Reserve Bank has asked troubled digital wallet firm Mobikwik, which is facing data breach allegations, to get a forensic audit done without any delay. Though the firm has been claiming that its systems are secure and that there is no basis to the allegations of data breach, a group of hackers recently accessed personal and financial data of nearly 10 Cr Mobikwik customers.

Lately, sources in the know of the development told PTI that the RBI has ordered an immediate forensic audit of the company's systems by a certified auditor. When contacted, an RBI spokesperson refused to comment. Mobikwik refused to give a direct answer to a query on whether the RBI has ordered a forensic audit. "We take privacy and security of our user data seriously, and are working with authorities to conduct an independent forensic audit," it said.
