Data Security Compliance with the India Digital Personal Data Protection Act, 2023 - Compliance Brief

The Indian Parliament passed the Digital Personal Data Protection (DPDP) Act, 2023 in August 2023. The DPDP Act will replace Section 43A of the Information Technology Act, 2000 (“IT Act”) and the Information Technology (Reasonable Security Practices and Procedures and Sensitive Personal Data or Information) Rules, 2011 (“SPDI Rules”), which have been India’s data protection framework until now. The DPDP Act is the first cross-sectoral law on personal data protection in India which is for the processing of digital personal data in a manner that recognizes both the right of individuals to protect their data and the need to process such personal data for lawful purposes and matters connected therewith or incidental thereto.
