India pushed draft data protection with dynamism: UK Information Commissioner

The UK Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham has said that India had showed “dynamism” in coming out with draft rules for data protection, adding that while countries will choose different paths, the end goal of data privacy and security will be the same for all.

“The dynamism at which India pushed draft data protection rules is good,” she said on Wednesday, adding that India has secured an observer status at the global privacy forum.

India recently unveiled a draft bill, called the Personal Data Protection Bill, 2018, prepared by a high-level expert committee headed by former Supreme Court judge BN Srikrishna.
