Two-day workshop on data protection

Chandigarh: The Cyber Security Research Centre (CSRC) at Punjab Engineering College and the Cyber Peace Foundation commenced a two-day workshop to carry out a study of the Justice Srikrishna Committee Paper on Data Protection (Draft Law) from a national security perspective on Monday.

  • The objective of the workshop was to foster discussions on the draft law and provide more clarity on the underlying concerns.
  • Gen DS Hooda pointed out that there can be no privacy without security. “There needs to be different laws/provisions to cover the critical information infrastructure, where the government and various sensitive organisations and their manpower are covered with special provisions. The proposed Data Protection Authority of India should have members who are from the military background with specialisation in information warfare,” he said. TNS
