From Venkatesh Krishnamoorthy: “A national policy is talking about mandating a company, which is doing business in India, to give over data, I am really worried about it. Why would a company that has built the technology to use data handover all the data? Data localisation affects data security. The best practice for cybersecurity is to make sure you compartmentalise data sets, that you maintain redundant data sets across the world.”
