About the Conference

Cyber Security and Data Privacy are interrelated and interdependent aspects of today’s Digital World. While every citizen is entitled to privacy of his particulars, Cyber Security is concerned with Security of the data on the Internet. The way the security threats and security breaches are rampant in the Cyberspace today, there is a need to have robust and resilient legal protection for Data Privacy and Cyber Security in the country. Indian Government is making a beginning in this direction, by way of the proposed Personal Data Protection Bill 2019.

New emerging trends of cyberspace such as Artificial intelligence, Internet of things, BlockChain, Darknet & Cloud Computing posed new challenges to data security and privacy concerns in Cyberspace. Growing challenges of managing security of the data in organizations, corporate and government, that are increasingly connected with their global suppliers, partners and contractors, and the increasing exposure to threats and attacks demand a comprehensive approach to information security.

The world has witnessed some alarming security breaches which also threaten the national security. In the current times of increased global data flows, understanding Cyber Security and data protection become critical to harmonize the operations and build trust for Indian industries and government entities.
