  • How do we define non-personal data?
  • Is there a need for a separate law for non-personal data?
  • What are effective mechanisms for sharing non-personal data?
  • What expertise is required for sharing non-personal data, including high-value datasets?
  • How can we address the risk of de-anonymization and user privacy?
  • How would businesses benefit from further access to non-personal data?
  • Should non-personal data mandatorily be made public?
  • Should a regulator determine what non-personal data is public?
  • How will the Non-Personal Data Framework impact businesses?
  • How should we think about data trusts and stewardship?
  • What are the risks behind government access to non-personal data?
  • How will the Data Protection Authority regulate non-personal data?

Why we are doing this: The Joint Parliamentary Committee on the Personal Data Protection Bill has recommended that non-personal data be included in the Data Protection Bill, and it be governed by a single Data Protection Authority. In the previous version of the report, the committee had defined parameters regarding who can seek non-personal data, high-value datasets, sovereign access to data, meta-data directories, and a lot more.

We might soon have legislation outlining how non-personal data must be treated and governed in India. As we get closer to framing regulation around non-personal data in India, this event will bring together experts to examine key issues.
