Microsoft Is Sharing Indian Banking Data With US Intelligence

The Infinite Brief
Microsoft has been accused by Indian financial institutions of deliberately sharing data about customers with US Intelligence Agencies.

A report in the Indian press cites a document from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) which found that banks which have migrated to Microsoft Office 365 services have had their customers’ data shared with the US in order to comply with US law.

The RBI found that that between 2014 and 2016, Microsoft had received 4,000 requests about Indian customers and shared information on 3,036 occasions.
