The Data Security Council of India (DSCI) and Fulbright & Jaworski co-hosted a presentation on India's data privacy and security practices, led by representatives from the DSCI and the U.S. Department of Commerce. The recently created DSCI Privacy Framework (DPF) is based on nine globally accepted privacy principles; their implementation is achieved through a set of best practices. The Privacy Framework, along with the Data Security Framework (DSF) is now complete and is under pilot implementation by a number of service providers.

The DSCI presents the Privacy Framework and their Best Practices Approach to client companies in D.C. which are or are considering outsourcing to India. The Department of Commerce will discuss how this Framework compares with other global privacy initiatives, including the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation's Privacy Framework.

This presentation was moderated by Pamela Jones Harbour, a former FTC Commissioner who heads the Fulbright's Privacy, Competition and Data Protection practice. Speakers included Kamlesh Bajaj, CEO of DSCI, Vinayak Godse, Director of DSCI and Robin Layton, Director, Office of Technology and e-Commerce, U.S. Department of Commerce.
