APAC: Digital Personal Data Protection Bill of 2022 Will it Ensure a Digital Economy that is Equitable and Unrestricted?

The Indian government recently introduced the Digital Personal Data Protection Bill of 2022, which seeks to establish a comprehensive framework for data privacy in the country. The proposed legislation is a replacement for the Information Technology Act and associated rules, and it includes new requirements for data collectors and processors to protect the privacy and security of personal data. The Bill also aims to grant individuals greater control over their personal data and establishes penalties for non-compliance.

  • Key aspects of the Bill, including the obligations and responsibilities for data fiduciaries and processors, data principals' rights, and the regulatory framework for cross-border data transfer.
  • Insights on how the Bill compares with other data protection laws globally and assess its potential impact on India's digital economy.
  • A platform for industry experts, policymakers, and legal professionals to share their perspectives on the proposed Bill and to discuss ways to promote a robust data protection regime in India.
