New law to strengthen protection of privacy, data

The Hindu Business Line, July 28, 2018

By K V Kurmanath

From Venkatesh Krishnamoorthy: “Our member companies are at the forefront of data-driven innovation and recognise the importance of fostering trust and confidence in the online environment. We support the effort to create a comprehensive legislation to protect the personal information of citizens.” “However, including data localisation requirements in such legislation is contrary to the goals of promoting Digital India, as global data transfers are critical to cloud computing, data analytics, and other modern and emerging technologies and services that underpin global economic growth.”
