Topic: Data Privacy Under the India DPDP Act 2023: What You Need to Know


Abstract: In today’s digital environment, Information Security (IS) is not a choice, but a compliance-driven necessity focused on safeguarding users’ data. Regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), etc., mandate organizations handling personal data to employ measures to protect the PII and users’ financial information. However, each country has its own set of regulations and policies that determine compliance requirements.

It is designed to provide a comprehensive overview of the new Indian legislation, focusing on its scope, applicability, and the significant impact it will have on global companies that handle the personal data of Indian citizens, regardless of whether the data processing occurs within or outside of India. The webinar will further delve into the key differences between the India DPDP Act and the GDPR, highlighting the changes organizations need to implement to ensure compliance with the new Indian regulations.
