Panel: GDPR: The Impact on India' Changing Data Privacy Landscape
The privacy movement is gathering steam in India, with the Supreme Court recently ruling privacy is a fundamental right of citizens. However, a more immediate scramble is underway is to understand how Indian enterprises have started adapting to GDPR regime.
How has the GDPR mandate impacted Indian organizations, specifically those conducting business with EU nations and handling EU citizens' data? What are some challenges related to compliance with GDPR, and what is expected of organizations in the case of a data breach? What can practitioners expect the implications and impact to be, and how will it change the business imperatives, in the view of the hefty fines GDPR could impose? And what do Indian practitioners stand to learn from the changes taking place in the privacy landscape worldwide?
In this session, a panel of information security, cyber law and privacy experts, moderated by Sanjay Sahay, Additional Director General of Police-Cyber for Karnataka Police, will address:
- How GDPR will impact Indian organizations;
- Which control frameworks and standards for managing data privacy are relevant in India;
- What lessons GDPR can provide for creating a practical privacy framework for India.
