Framing Data Protection for India

data protection

Looking back this year, it was one fine morning of March, I was on my regular commute to work and my phone beeps. There was a news notification that read “Facebook in a Data Scandal”. I clicked on the link to find out what this whole chaos was. Cambridge Analytica had harvested the personal data of millions of people’s Facebook profiles without their consent and used it for political purposes. Majorly, this was the call for tighter regulation of tech companies’ use of data. Hence, the EU General Data Protection Regulations comes into the scene. In India, the EU GDPR came into effect on May 25th and Indian companies and the MNCs are in the process of assessing the impact that EU General Data Protection Regulations (“GDPR”) will have on their businesses. While many may argue that the compliance is exorbitant as high administrative fines in case of non-compliance with GDPR provisions are the driving force behind these concerns as they can lead to loss of business in India, no doubt that GDPR is here and is going to change industries’ perspective about the data usage. This is the era of internet, where everyone feeds on data; it is an absolute necessity for a certain set of rules that assures that one’s data is being protected. Recently, I got an opportunity to sit with Sanjay Katkar, Joint Managing Director and Chief Technology Officer, Quick Heal Technologies I Shrenik Bhayani, General Manager, Kaspersky Lab (South Asia) I Rajesh Maurya, Regional Vice President, India & SAARC, Fortinet I Sean Sullivan, Security Advisor at F-Secure I Rakesh Viswanathan, Regional Director, India & SAARC at Cyberbit I Gagandeep Singh, Head of Practice, Risk Advisory, APAC and Japan, Aujas I & thus began the journey to explore the depths of this “requisite to safeguard” the buzz word
that DATA is.
