Why DGPSI is the Gold Standard of Compliance to DPDPA?

India has been discussing the Data Protection Law for last several years and finally arrived at the DPDPA 2023.

The act has been notified with Presidential approval but the notification of an effective date and some rules are pending. We hope this is within the 100 days agenda of the Modi 3.0 Government.

We donot know how generous would be the Government in giving time for implementation. At the same time we also donot know how much time each organization takes to be compliant. However one thing is certain, any organization which starts early is likely to meet the dead line more effectively than others who keep procrastinating.

A question however arises how can any organisation starts compliance program before the rules are notified.

It is true that the rules can make a difference to the compliance program. But a large part of time consuming compliance activities are already identified and we donot need any mor clarification.

It is in this context that the framework DGPSI (Data Governance and Protection Standard of India) which has been designed and developed by Professionals of FDPPI emerges as the Gold standard of DPDPA compliance.

For those who donot know DGPSI, it is time to make efforts to know DGPSI Lite and DGPSI Full versions of framework that meets the compliance levels expected in the Act and ready to meet the needs of the emerging rules.

In fact during DGPSI implementation, accredited auditors of FDPPI use procedures which would be more than sufficient to meet the requirements of the rules.

The probability of compliance to the rules is extremely high if one follows the DGPSI framework and the manual of DGPSI implementation.

We are sure that there will be other frameworks which will come forth from different organizations but DGPSI shall remain the Gold standard since it is future ready and adaptable.

It is not enough if Naavi says that DGPSI is the “Gold Standard”.  You need to check and be  satisfied.

I invite professionals to raise any questions they have on DPDPA compliance and how DGPSI addresses it and we will be happy to answer each one of them.
