The Justice Srikrishna Committee has released a draft data protection law for India, and we will be discussing the issues related to the law: what needs to be changed in the final version, and what’s right and wrong with the current approach. Topics we will cover will include:

  • Issues related to data sovereignty, localisation, mirroring and cross border data flows.
  • Impact on consent, data collection, storage and transfer.
  • Role of the data protection authority, auditing and enforcement mechanisms
  • Right to be forgotten and data erasure
  • Governance of government data collection and use, and the regulation of surveillance
  • Impact on notice and consent
  • Understanding penalties

We’re looking at an audience of around 100–120 people, including but not limited to:

  • Policy wonks and Think Tanks
  • Lawyers
  • Large Internet businesses that collect and store data
  • Startups
  • Government and Regulatory Executives
  • Members of Parliament and their staff
