Data Governance is getting increased attention now since after the PDPA becoming a law there would be need for further legislation on processing of “Community Data” and “Aggregated Anonymized Data”. This may perhaps be addressed through a new legislation on “Data Governance”. The Government has set up an Expert Committee for this purpose.
More information on these developments are found here:
- Formation of the Expert Committee
- Views of Kris Gopalakrishna…1.. What do they indicate for the Privacy Regulation in India
- Views of Kris Gopalakrishna…2.. Leveraging Data for the benefit of individuals
- Views of Gopalakrishna …3…on Privacy
- Data Productivity vs Data Security
- What is Community Privacy? and who has the right of disposal?
There is every indication that “Data Governance Act of India” will sooner or later come into operation. It is good for the Data Protection Professionals to be watchful of these developments.
Data Protection will continue to be an important segment of Data Governance. But it is possible that a new outlook will come to bear on “Data Security” with a lot more liberal outlook than what the data protection professionals would be accustomed to today. The interpretations may move from the GDPR side to the CCPA side, unless the law is clear.
FDPPI will closely watch the developments on Data Governance and as a part of its activities will keep “Data Governance” on our radar along with “Data Protection”.
In order to initiate the discussions, FDPPI is conducting a webinar on Data Governance on 12th October 2019 at 5.30 pm. Interested persons may contact firstname.lastname@example.org for an invitation.
