Understanding evolving data protection and privacy regulations in India


In recent years, organisations of all sizes operating in all sectors and markets have been targets of cybersecurity attacks. For their general counsel, knowing how to respond to these threats goes beyond knowledge of black-letter law. Knowing who to communicate with in the organisation, aligning legal with other functions, and finding practical and timely external advice are now more important than ever. And with the trend toward remote working, the risks businesses in all countries face are set to grow.

This webinar, brought to you by The Legal 500 and TMT Law Practice was designed to provide GCs and business owners with the essential knowledge on the practical steps that can be taken to mitigate, manage and overcome cyber incidents, whilst also delivering relevant and practical insights into the evolving regulatory landscape, ahead of amendments to India’s Personal Data Protection (PDP) Bill.
