Even before the formation of FDPPI, we, the initial promoters, started our activities as Indian Academy of Data Protection professionals under the banner of IADPP.  We held couple of webinars one on Personal Data Protection Act and another on National Health Stack.

Now with FDPPI coming to formal existence, the Central and Regional Governance Councils and the Action Groups will chart out the future programs as soon as possible.
