DSCI-Deloitte GDPR readiness report
A study of the preparedness of Indian organizations with the requirements mandated by GDPR
Data Security Council of India (DSCI) and Deloitte India jointly conducted a survey to study the preparedness of organizations based in India with the requirements mandated by the European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The objective of this survey was to gauge the GDPR readiness process and the overall alignment towards privacy of Indian organizations. The results of the survey indicate that organizations are pursuing a wide range of readiness approaches. They are adopting leading practices to monitor, assess and manage privacy-related risks and steer the GDPR journey. A proactive approach towards GDPR goes beyond a regulatory requirement, helping organizations demonstrate their trustworthiness. Therefore, GDPR drives a culture of privacy by design in an organization.
