Data Privacy and Protection Masterclass (Bangalore)

A nine-judge Constitution bench of the Supreme Court ruled that privacy is a fundamental right in a verdict that would have implications for serious implications on companies for data protection. The judgement effectively creates for the first time, obligations and responsibilities, for all those companies or government organisations that deal with Indian citizens and their information. Data Protection refers to the set of privacy laws, policies and procedures that aim to minimise intrusion into one`s privacy caused by the collection, storage and dissemination of personal data. Personal data generally refers to the information or data which relate to a person who can be identified from that information or data whether collected by any Government or any private organization or an agency. The growth and development of technology has created new avenues for a possible invasion of privacy, involving State or non-State actors, and is required to be protected under Article 21 of the Constitution. There is a need to formulate regulations and have a robust legislation on data protection. Such data protection regime must strike a balance between individual interests and legitimate concerns of the State. The legitimate concerns of the State would include, inter alia, welfare programmes, national security, prevention and investigation of crime. The State must ensure that information is not used without the consent of users and data collected is used only: (i) for a legitimate purpose; and (ii) to the extent that it was disclosed.

A nuanced approach towards data protection will have to be followed in India, keeping in mind the fact that individual privacy is a fundamental right limited by reasonable restrictions, according to a white paper issued by the government on a data protection framework. On 31 July, the government constituted a 10-member committee of experts headed by former Supreme Court justice B.N. Srikrishna to study various issues relating to data protection and make specific suggestions on the principles to be considered for data protection as well as suggest a draft Data Protection bill. The government had sought public comments on the white paper.
