Several dignitaries, including leading entrepreneurs, data protection officers, IT professionals and legal officers graced the event. Ms. Payal Malik, Adviser of Competition Commission of India and Mr. Harihara Natarajan, Chairperson, ASSOCHAM National Council were among the eminent speakers.

Mr. Vishwas Balakrishna, Estuate’s Data and Analytics Head drove the discussion on the influence of GDPR on global data privacy laws.

“GDPR is turning out to be a game-changer in the world of data privacy. If nations across the globe can get influenced by this revolutionary law and impose similar regulations, citizens will have greater control on how their personal information is treated. The status of worldwide data privacy may possibly get stronger and more resilient in the days to come.”, Vishwas stated. The discussion also focused on why Indian companies should follow GDPR guidelines while dealing with European citizens’ data.

The event was an outstanding opportunity for organizations and data privacy enthusiasts to understand global cybersafety challenges and laws better, and take away valuable insights on improvising information security.
