In the information-dominated 21st century, data is a valuable resource. Data is the primary driver of the global economy in the current era. It becomes vital to control the flow of data since many Gigabytes of data are sent around the world every second. Sensitive personal information is frequently included in data that travels over the internet and is examined by businesses, hackers, and other organizations in order to reap financial rewards. We, the individuals who generate this data, undoubtedly require security for the processing or use of the data. We require openness on the methods used to access our data. Data protection laws enter the picture in this situation.
Many nations are passing these laws in order to protect the data that is produced by their population.
In addition to discussing the state of data protection laws in India and around the world, my research paper focuses on the Indian Jurisprudence's approach to privacy and security. The data protection and privacy laws that govern how data is handled, analysed, and used will be explained in this research paper.
