Data protection and Cyber laws
The ever-growing global economy, interaction between businesses and clients, cross-border nature of transactions etc. has caused a manifold increase in data exchange. In today’s time, data alone has proved to be an important asset for any business entity, thereby causing businesses to protect the data collected/owned by them from various cyber-crimes/ data breaches.
Recent times has also witnessed multiple jurisdictions imposing stringent data protection regulations such as the GDPR, HIPAA, Personal Data Protection Bill, 2019, making it a legal requirement to secure the data rather than a mere business requirement. Ediplis has been one of the forerunners in providing data protection, privacy and cyber law related services.
