Data Privacy & Protection

Data Privacy and Protection are the key digital governance issues which need intervention of the global regulators. Digital technology has got deep into our daily lives be it the businesses – large corporations, SMEs or retail stores, the governments, various institutions or the private citizens. And with the confluence of life and technology, it has become imperative to protect and control the resource that is common across all such channels of convergence – ‘the data’. Yet many countries do not have dedicated regulations to address the issues related to these. It is estimated that by 2025 – 75% of the world’s population will be connected to a digital device. The estimated size of the global data in the year 2025 will be 163 zb up from 16 zb in the year 2016 and large share of this data will need data security protection.

World has taken note of the existing data security gap. Europe being the frontrunner with GDPR Regulations, other regions are now following their footsteps in bringing comprehensive data protection legislations. In India, the proposed Personal Data Protection Bill 2019 (PDPB) is currently being reviewed by the Joint Parliamentary Committee. The PDPB inter alia, prescribes the manner in which personal data is to be collected, processed, used, disclosed, stored and transferred. The bill has provisions regarding the obligations of data fiduciary, processing of personal data with consent, Rights of an Individual, processing of sensitive data, transparency and accountability measures, transfer of data outside India and non-compliance among other provisions.
