All India DPDPA Awareness Movement

Naavi has in the past taken up Cyber Law Awareness outreach programs on a mission mode through Karnataka under the Karnataka Cyber Law Awareness Movement. Under this program, Naavi and Cyber Law College conducted courses in Cyber Law across the State of Karnataka and was the early injection of Cyber Law knowledge with the professionals as well as the students. At that time the program was centred around Information Technology Act 2000. (ITA 2000)

The industry was however not interested much in ITA 2000 and hence the movement was limited to Law Students, Law Colleges and Advocates. It was a successful program which later partially spread across the country. Naavi conducted hundreds of trainings under this program to all sections of the society.

A time has now come to repeat a similar exercise in the field of DPDPA. As the Data Protection Act DPDPA 2023 is set to be notified shortly, there will be a need to spread the awareness of DPDPA 2023 across colleges as well as companies.

The All India DPDPA Awareness Movement is therefore conceived to take the knowledge of DPDPA 2023 across the country through multiple channels including Certification Programs conducted under the banner of FDPPI as well as other activities on social media and through academic partnerships.

The objective of this program is

a) Make public aware of the concept of Data Privacy and how to make use of the provisions of DPDPA 2023.

b) Make Law Students and Law Faculty aware of the concept of Data Privacy and how Data Protection is related to Data Privacy.

c) Make companies aware of the impact of DPDPA on their operations from the level of Directors to CxOs to DPO aspirants and the general workforce.

This is in addition to the professional skill development programs that may be conducted with FDPPI in different forms.

Watch out for activities starting in June 2024 in this regard.
