In a bid to continue the legacy of naavi.org as an endeavour to “Build a Responsible Cyber Society”, Naavi has started yet another educational website that should complement the current activities in promoting Cyber Law Compliance in IT industry in India. This new effort is to build awareness about the “General Data Protection Regulation” (GDPR) which has replaced the Data Protection Regime in European Union and is set to change the landscape in Privacy practice in India and elsewhere in the globe.
Indian IT industry being a dependent on data processing of which a large share of business may come from the EU countries need to ensure that we donot lose business or incur liabilities on account of non compliance of GDPR.
SMEs and Mobile App companies specifically require knowledge input and consultancy to ensure that they are on the right side of the regulations to protect their business. Towards building a knowledge infrastructure in this regard, Naavi has now started a new website www.gdpr.ind.in dedicated to the presentation of the regulation. This will be supplemented by analysis and discussions on www.privacy.ind.in (Privacy Knowledge Center) besides this parent website.
Naavi recognizes that the field of Privacy is vast and we can only be a catalyst in starting what we can call as a “Knowledge Center”. For it to truly become one, contributions are to be made by other like minded professionals who can share knowledge for public good.
I take this opportunity therefore to invite Privacy professionals to contribute their thoughts to the building up of the knowledge related to compliance of Privacy Laws such as GDPR so that India may in due course becomes a country recognized as the best GDPR compliant country. The articles may be published on the Privacy Knowledge Center with due acknowledgement of the contribution.
Come, let us start our journey towards making India the best GDPR compliant country.
