Research and Awareness Building

Data Security Council of India (DSCI), is a not-for-profit, industry body on data protection in India, set up by NASSCOM. It is committed to making the cyberspace safe, secure and trusted by establishing best practices, standards and initiatives in cyber security and privacy. To further these objectives, DSCI engages with governments and their agencies, regulators, industry sectors, industry associations and think tanks for policy advocacy, thought leadership, capacity building and outreach activities.

We funded DSCI to conduct research on sectoral implications of privacy. As part of this program, DSCI will study three sectors and understand better how organisations in these sectors can improve their data practices. DSCI will bring out sectoral data privacy handbooks and organise events where stakeholders can learn and discuss more.

ONI Impact Thesis

By developing tools like specific data privacy handbooks and self-assessment kits, DSCI aims to support businesses to improve understanding of data protection regulations, and thereby adopt better data practices leading to reduced risk of data breaches and safer online transactions for their customers. DSCI also identifies and recognises solutions that can help businesses efficiently improve their data practices.
