Digital Personal Data Protection Act 2023
Many entities, in the private and public sector as well as the State, collect and use personal data for delivering goods, services, benefits and various other purposes. Personal data enables these entities to uniquely customise their outreach and offerings to individuals based on understanding individual preferences and habits, trends, spending power, and targeted advertising.
Personal data also aids the State in law enforcement, healthcare, education, civic services, and generally better governance. However, unchecked processing can have adverse implications for the rights of individuals and needs to be subject to checks and balances. Many countries have already implemented privacy protection regimes, with India being the latest to introduce a substantial legislation on privacy through the new Digital Personal Data Protection Act, 2023.
The next months and years will be crucial as implementation begins, challenges emerge and the privacy regime in India matures. Questions will arise on building privacy into systems and establishing effective compliance and governance programs. Understand where companies stand today and the road ahead. The session is divided into following parts.
- Introduction to the Digital Personal Data Protection Act, 2023
- Understanding ‘consent’, its scope and limitations
- Key compliances and their practical import
- Key triggers for applicability
- Case studies on key sectors
