Registrations are open; apply to attend, and block your calendars.

Our thought process behind this conference was to bring into the conversation, international and global perspectives on privacy legislation: What are the trends that we’re seeing in privacy regulations in the BRICS countries? What does it take to operationalise a privacy regulation? How do global businesses adapt products and practices across territorial jurisdictions? What are privacy regulations doing about protecting data pertaining to bodies of individuals? How is privacy legislation impacting the openness of the Internet?

MediaNama is hosting this conference in partnership with CyberBRICS, Centre for Internet and Society and Centre for Communication Governance (NLU Delhi)
