About Programme

Gone are the times when people used to put locks on safety deposit boxes and lockers in banks & homes in order to protect their valuable assets. The fact that all our valuable assets have taken the form of “DATA” in cyberspace, is not surprising. With digitalization taking on the world, the concept of data privacy has taken an all new level. Data Privacy affects each and every individual in today’s digital world, and therefore concerns every organization. Organizations that deal with large amount of customer data are at stake when it comes to data privacy. In India, the prevailing myth seems to be ‘Data Protection’ is not something we need to bother about just yet – there is no law’. Another common misunderstanding is that Data Privacy is the same as Data Security. This course clears these myths and gives a deep understanding of the present legal position of data privacy in India vis-a-vis GDPR regulations.
