India's Personal Data Protection - or PDP - Bill is "a useful framework that requires organizations to analyze the sensitivity of data that they collect and process and use this analysis to adopt a customized cybersecurity plan," says Keshav Dhakad, general counsel and group head of corporate, external and legal affairs for Microsoft India.
"We expect a paradigm shift in the seriousness with which companies will approach cybersecurity policies, practices and organizational requirements," he says. "We expect greater emphasis on companies adopting encryption standards, multifactor authentication, de-identification and hashing tools, and penetration testing to check the robustness of the security measures and what was enabled during the pandemic - the zero trust architecture."
