India's Data Protection Bill: An AnalysisAttorney Vaishali Bhagwat Size Up the 'Harm-based' Approach
Vaishali Bhagwat, cyber lawyer and advocate, contends that the "harms-based" approach in India's data protection bill is more appropriate than the "rights-based" approach taken by the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation.
In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent Security Summit in Mumbai, Bhagwat discusses:
- How the bill, if enacted, would impact Section 43A of the Information Technology Act, 2000;
- What constitutes a personal data breach under the bill;
- How the bill compares with GDPR.
Bhagwat is managing partner at VP Shintre & Associates, a law firm based in Pune. She has more than 20 years of legal experience and was the first lawyer in the country who was selected for the Chevening TCS Cyber Security Fellowship.
