IDPS 2022 will suggest what the New Data Protection Bill in India should be.

Laws are often created by the law makers without adequate consultation with the industry. Professionals also have the habit of not interacting with the Government before the law is made but criticise the law once it is made.

Naavi and FDPPI would like to be an exception to both these.

We would provide  suggestions before the law is made and try to support compliance once the law is made.

At present we has adopted the provisions of Section 43A and the Intermediary Guidelines as part of the Personal data protection compliance requirements. The DPCSI (Data Protection Compliance Standard of India) therefore adopts the ITA 2008 compliance as the current compliance standard of India with PDPB 2019 as the “Due Diligence guideline (though withdrawn)”.

Now that the Government is considering a new Bill, the time is ripe for placing suggestions for the Government to consider and incorporate in the Bill. Once the Government brings in a Bill until it is passed, we will focus on the suggestions for modifications and once it is passed as an Act will start advocating the compliance as per the Act.

The annual flagship event of FDPPI namely the Indian Data Protection Summit 2022 (IDPS 2022) is the platform with the theme “Shape of Things to Come” where we shall discuss the law as professionals would like it to be and document the suggestions at the end of the conference.

Mark the dates November 11th 12th and 13th for this event and participate both for enhancing your knowledge and to contribute to the suggestions.
