Data Protection refers to a set of privacy laws, policies and procedures that aim to minimise intrusion into one’s privacy caused by the collection, storage and dissemination of personal data. While the term “Personal data” generally refers to the information or data which relate to a person who can be identified from that information or data whether collected by any Government or any private organization or an agency.
With world making rapid strides towards digitization and creation of a robust legal framework dealing with privacy and data protection the call for safety and security of the data generated and processed is higher. Personal data is vital not only to the service it concerns itself with, but also because of the value addition made to scientific research and development.
With multiple overlaps of authorities, access controls, and the possibility of security incidents, there is an unprecedented need for businesses to upgrade their privacy standards to avoid potential liabilities and meet mandatory compliance standards. Our team has consistently adopted an innovative approach and engaged with clients on key compliance requirements and on implementation of tailored solutions for them.
