The Data Chronicles: Initial reactions to India’s new Digital Personal Data Protection Bill

Welcome to Hogan Lovells’ The Data Chronicles, brought to you by the firm’s global Privacy and Cybersecurity practice. This multimedia series is dedicated to the ever-changing legal and regulatory developments in the world of data, privacy, and cybersecurity.

India will have a new comprehensive privacy law, which will shake up the data protection world in the region and require companies to rethink their global privacy compliance programs. In this episode, Scott Loughlin, co-lead of the Hogan Lovells Privacy and Cybersecurity practice is joined by Stephen Mathias, Partner and Co-Chair of the Technology Practice at Kochhar & Co, a leading law firm in India, to discuss the new law, which is named the Digital Personal Data Protection Bill 2023 (DPDPB). Scott and Stephen go into detail regarding the DPDPB’s areas of focus, how it compares to the GDPR, and what significant obligations and ramifications the bill has for global compliance programs and those who oversee them.
