The Centre for Public and Private International Law at Gujarat National Law University is going to conduct an Online Capsule Course on “Data Protection Laws in Selected Jurisdictions with focus on cross-border legal challenges”.

Date: 26th - 27th September, 2020

Across the world, both public and private sector entities have resorted to online platforms for creating A workspaces with the advent of a new world order due to novel coronavirus pandemic. Data as a commodity A which anyway had been considered as the 'new oil' to world economics becomes even more significantly tradable. While the study of data privacy and protection has hitherto focused predominantly upon the nexus of law and technology, it becomes considerably important to look within the cross-border legal challenges growing out of the attempts of selected jurisdictions and international organizations to establish a baseline of concepts and principles. Further the implications of transnational movement of personal data will be dealt while perusing the in-depth of understanding of principles such as privacy, control and enforcement, consent and collection, storage, international transfer, code of practice, data portability and right to be forgotten.
