Access Partnership’s Global Head of Public Policy Laura Sallstrom has contributed an article for ORF’s Digital Debates — CyFy Journal 2018. Observer Research Foundation (ORF) is one of Asia’s most influential think tanks, providing independent analysis on security, strategy, economy, development, energy and resources.

India’s recent data protection framework is the country’s first attempt to balance some of these competing priorities – protecting a nascent but fast-growing digital economy and the rights of a billion users. In the article called “Cross-border Data Flows, Privacy, and India” Laura Sallstrom et al. argue that the Indian iteration is “GDPR-lite” – mimicking their EU counterpart but not successfully. Data localisation, according to the authors, was considered and discarded by Europe since it poses economic risks. An approach they advocate India must follow—being an economic beneficiary to the incidence of cross-border data flows.
