Presented by the Privacy and Information Security Committee.

The proposed Indian Personal Data Protection Bill, likely to pass later this year, seeks to develop a national comprehensive data privacy framework. Due to India’s geopolitical and economic muscle, the bill will impact multinational tech companies and help shape global policy.

The ABA Antitrust Law Section in collaboration with the International Law Section recently submitted comments (here) on the bill to the Government of India. Please join the ALS Privacy and Information Security Committee for a lively discussion of key issues:

  • Indian Prime Minister Modi has advocated “Made in India” focusing on two essential themes – ‘self-reliance’ and ‘opportunity.’ Will that have any impact on the India legislation?
  • COVID-19 and India’s contact tracing app Data localization and cross-border transfers
  • Role of the Central Government vs. the Data Privacy Authority
  • Interoperability vs. Isolation
  • Parallels with the GDPR legitimate exception to consent
  • AI and automated decision-making
