Announcing Speakers, Agenda and Reading List: Regulating Non-Personal Data; Feb 18 #Ad

We have a stellar line-up of speakers, and as always, a great set of attendees for MediaNama’s discussion on “Regulating Non-Personal Data”, being held on February 18th, 2022. MediaNama is hosting this discussion with support from Google, PhonePe, Amazon, Meta, and Microsoft.

The Joint Parliamentary Committee on the Personal Data Protection Bill has recommended that non-personal data be included in the Data Protection Bill, and it be governed by a single Data Protection Authority. We might soon have legislation outlining how non-personal data must be treated and governed in India. This event will bring together experts to examine key issues with framing regulations for non-personal data and share actionable insights.
