Data Protection Bill: The Data Fiduciary's RoleJustice B.N. Srikrishna Discusses the Impact of Proposed Law
Under India's pending data protection bill, a data fiduciary would need to ensure that data is used only for the purpose for which it was collected, Justice (retired) B.N. Srikrishna chairman of India's Data Protection Committee, explains in this exclusive video interview.
"A data fiduciary must ensure that data is deleted when the purpose is over and when data is maintained on its database and that it is maintained accurately without corruption and not allowed to be breached by external agencies," Srikrishna says of the proposed requirements.
In this video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent Fraud and Breach Summit in Bengaluru, Srikrishna also discusses:
- The impact of the proposed data breach notification requirements;
- Why data localization is crucial for India;
- The process for the data protection bill to be enacted into law.
Srikrishna is a retired judge of the Supreme Court of India. He was appointed chairperson of the Committee of Experts of Data Protection Framework for India to identify key data protection issues in India and recommend methods of addressing them. He also serves as chairperson of the Advisory Committee on Individual Insolvency & Bankruptcy.
