GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) certification has now become essential for all entities operating in the EU or providing services remotely to EU citizens. The GDPR itself is a data privacy regulation that outlines data protection and privacy requirements for businesses operating within the European Union (EU) and those that process the personal data of EU residents.

Nevertheless, an organization’s adherence to GDPR principles and requirements can be assessed and verified and the organisational compliance to the GDPR certificated to enable organisations to meet the bare minimum threshold to operate in the EU. These certifications are may also be used by organizations to demonstrate their commitment to data protection standards.

Commonly, organizations may seek certifications or adhere to frameworks that demonstrate GDPR compliance, such as ISO/IEC 27701 for Privacy Information Management Systems (PIMS) or other industry-specific certifications. These certifications often involve conducting Data Protection Impact Assessment of an organization’s data protection practices, policies, and security measures.

More recently with the passing of the Digital Personal Data Protection Act 2023 (DPDP Act), the law in India now provides for the processing of digital personal data in a manner that recognizes both the right of individuals to protect their personal data and the need to process personal data for lawful purposes and for matters connected therewith or incidental thereto. The Act aims to establish a comprehensive legal framework governing digital personal data protection in India and provides for the processing of digital personal data in a manner that recognizes the right of individuals to protect their personal data, societal rights and the need to process personal data for lawful purposes.

The DPDP Act applies to processing of personal data collected within India’s territory, whether gathered online or offline and then digitized. It covers only to “Digital Data” and has extra- territorial applicability and applies to the processing of personal data even outside India if the processing is in connection with any profiling of, or activity of offering goods or services to data principals in India where personal data collected from data principals is subsequently digitised, and is processed within India.

While the DPDP(Digital personal data protection) Rules are yet to be introduced however to achieve digital personal data protection law compliance, businesses typically need to assess their data processing activities, implement safeguards, and adopt policies and procedures that align with the specific requirements of the applicable regulations. Compliance often involves obtaining explicit consent for data processing, implementing security measures, appointing data protection officers, and being transparent about data practices.
