PDPSI comes back

Naavi had introduced the framework of PDPSI as Personal Data Protection Standard of India to provide a framework of compliance for compliance of PDPB 2019, the earlier draft Bill for data protection in India.

However, when JPC 2 modified the draft Bill of PDPB 2019 as DPA 2021, the Bill was renamed as “Data Protection Bill” and some aspects of regulation of nonpersonal data was brought into the Bill with the possibility of the regulator under the Act having overlapping powers with the Director CERT-In who was responsible under ITA 2000 to regulate non personal data security.

We were therefore forced to rename the PDPSI framework as DPCSI frame work meaning Data Protection Compliance Standard of India. Now that the Government has decided to keep Personal Data Protection only to this act and leave non personal data protection to ITA 2000, it is time to revert to PDPSI as the name of the framework.

The 12 standard, 50 implementation specification format will remain and the DTS calculation based on the 50 Model Implementation specifications will also remain in tact though the new Act is silent on DTS for the time being.
