PDPSI stands for Personal Data Protection Standard of India being developed by Naavi.

The objective of the PDPSI is to present an open standard for the use of MSME organizations intending to follow Personal Data Protection Standards equivalent to the industry best practices.

PDPSI is meant for Indian organizations and covers the Indian regulations in addition to the best practices that can be imported from other global standards.

Naavi is publishing series of articles to highlight the requirements of PDPSI and would develop into a more formal document in due course.

For the time being one can refer to the following articles
