ABOUT THE COURSE 

The topic of data protection has become extremely relevant with the passing of time. The coming of Covid-19 has once again demonstrated the fact that Indians are becoming huge generators of data. As Indians have transformed themselves into global authors, global transmitters, and global broadcasters of data, it becomes imperative for data to be appropriately protected.
 India is now coming up with a new approach to data protection. After almost two years, the report of the Joint Parliamentary Committee (‘JPC’) on the Personal Data Protection Bill, 2019 was finally released on December 16, 2021. The Report also contains a new version of the law titled, “The Data Protection Bill, 2021”. In the light of these developments, a short-term- certificate course will be conducted on “Data Protection Approaches in India”. This course would aim to sensitize all stakeholders about the emerging data protection legal frameworks and approaches in India. The course is proposed for a total duration of 16 hours. The course would be jointly offered by Cyberlaw University and the Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law.
