SCENARIOS AND CHALLENGES IN PERSONAL DATA PROTECTION
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has undergone the most important change in data privacy regulation in twenty years.

The changes came into force in May 2018. The new regulations give data subjects significant new rights over collection, processing and transfer of their personal data by data controllers and processors in the course processing activities related to the offering of goods and services to such data subjects in the EU.

The companies dealing with EU residents have undertaken many steps to ensure compliance with new requirements. Many organizations have updated their data privacy policies in addition to other measures around data flow and processing within internal processes.

Other countries are also following with stricter data privacy regulations in view of a personal data breach at a popular and global social networking site. The Personal Data Protection Bill in India also includes provision for imprisonment in case of breach related to personal data. This is under draft stage, but it gives enough indication as to the global trends in personal data protection laws.

We’ll analyze two incidents and review the implications in light with emerging global regulations.
