Privacy and Data Protection
Draft Personal Data Protection Bill 2018: A Summary
Protection of personal data of data principal* is at the core of the draft Personal Data Protection Bill, 2018 (hereafter referred as “PDPB” or “bill”).
This means once the bill is enacted and enforced, privacy will no longer be optional and cannot be ignored. Among many significant provisions, the PDPB proposes substantial penalty for violation of the stated requirement.
Such provisions along with heightened focus on collection and use of personal data, will require organisations (referred in the bill as Data Fiduciary and Data Processor) to revisit their risk acceptance criteria and establish a robust privacy and data protection framework.
