GDPR, Data Localization & Indian Corporates

Data protection as an issue has always been an area of concern for various stakeholders in the digital and mobile ecosystem. Different countries have been coming up with different national laws on data protection. European Union has recently adopted an extremely significant standard on data protection which is invariably looked up as a role model by various countries, being General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The said Regulation has come into effect from 25th May, 2018 and is expected to have a game-changing impact.

This Book should be of value to not just lawyers, legal professionals, lawyers, judges, academicians, nation states, governments but also various companies and their boards and other stakeholders, who are concerned with data processing pertaining to people residing in the European Union as also data localization.



Cyber Sovereignty & Cyberlaw

Cyberspace has brought across distinctly new fertile areas for the potential growth of new concepts. One of the new concepts that we are beginning to hear lately is the concept of cyber sovereignty. At a first look, the entire concept of cyber sovereignty has various connotations. We all thought that cyberspace created a boundary-less medium and that being so, it was a common heritage for humanity as a whole. Hence, any talk of sovereignty in cyberspace itself runs contra to the concept of cyberspace. However, as countries have woken up to the significance and impact of cyberspace, they are now increasingly propagating and expanding the scope of the new legal concept known as cyber sovereignty.

This Book has been written at a very early stage of development concerning cyber sovereignty. I hope it could be a starting point for the evolution of discussion and debate about the evolving jurisprudence concerning cyber sovereignty. This book should be of value to not just lawyers, legal professionals, lawyers, judges, academicians, nation states, governments but also other stakeholders, who are concerned with how practically the concept of cyber sovereignty is beginning to evolve and is likely to sustain and consolidate in the coming times.

Not only does it involve huge elements of pressure in decision making but more significantly, with the passage of time, a new distinct kind of responsibility is being expected from the boards of companies.

So significant is cybersecurity for the day-to-day systems and operations of any company that different legislative frameworks and statutory bodies are now increasingly coming up with the new stipulations, for the boards for protecting and preserving cybersecurity.

This book seeks to analyze what’s the current legal jurisprudence concerning the responsibility of boards of companies for protecting cybersecurity; what is the international position in this regard; what are the distinct legal approaches in different countries; what is the evolving jurisprudence in this regard; and what are the international perspectives that are emerging in this context- these and other questions are sought to be covered by the present book. This present book should be handbook for every member of boards of management of any company, who needs to know about the impact of cybersecurity on the responsibility of the present day board.
