Set up in 1990, Observer Research Foundation (ORF) is a one of Asia’s preeminent think tanks that provides non-partisan, independent analyses on matters of security, strategy, foreign policy and global governance. ORF’s Cyber Initiative hosts CyFy: the India Conference on Technology, Security and Society. It also convenes Track 1.5 dialogues with the United States, the United Kingdom and the European Union on cyber issues. ORF’s research revolves around cross-border data sharing, security of digital payments, encryption and emerging technologies.
Over the past few months, ORF has convened three multistakeholder roundtables specifically aimed at obtaining inputs for the data protection law. These roundtables have engaged a wide range of experts from different disciplinary backgrounds. The issues highlighted below represent what we consider pivotal to the new data protection regime. The opinions expressed here, while encapsulating the conversations at the roundtables, have been curated by ORF, and may not represent the views of any participants in attendance. The list of participants in attendance at these roundtables is available on request.
