FDPPI has already established itself as a leading institution in India in the field of Data Protection and provides affordable, global quality certification programs for professionals who want to build a career in Data Protection.
FDPPI is also in the process of establishing a compliance framework “Personal Data Protection Standard of India” as a standard for the use of SMEs and MSMEs on par with the globally recognized standards.
These two projects are expected to not only enable SMEs and MSMEs to be compliant with the Indian and Global data protection laws such as ITA 2008 (at present), PDPA-2020 (Proposed in India), GDPR and other laws which multiple countries have established, without the usual high costs associated with such certifications and compliance programs but save precious foreign exchange for the country.
While Data Protection is a concept well understood in the IT industry, its importance is not so well appreciated in the manufacturing industry and SME sector.
The Personal Data Protection Bill 2019 is now before the Joint Parliamentary Committee of the Parliament and is expected to be passed into a law soon. When the law comes into operation, it will extend the provisions of ITA 2000/2008 (Information Technology Act 2000 amended in 2008) and make it necessary for all organizations handling personal data to be proactively compliant or otherwise face prospects of significant fines. Though certain time would be available for compliance, prudent managements need to start their journey towards compliance early so that they are not caught napping at a later date.
“Getting Ready for the Data Protection Era” is aimed at creating a basic awareness of how the proposed law may affect SMEs including those in the Non IT sector. It is an initiative to spread the awareness of PDPA.
This is a “Free Webinar” available for any interested person upon registration and invitation. The registration form is available here.
Understanding PDPA is not only essential to remain compliant but also to prepare ourselves for the next era of “Non Personal Data Governance Regulation” which the Government of India is working on to unlock the value of Non Personal Data.
We are pleased to inform that the honourable Member of Parliament, Sri Tejasvi Surya has consented to inaugurate the program. Several organizations such as See Change Consulting, KASSIA and BSPIN are supporting the program for the benefit of their members.
