The COVID-19 pandemic has turned into a global emergency, with terrible implications in terms of human life and economic decline. This lethal disease and its economic consequences have wreaked havoc on each and every section of the society. During the pandemic, government officials and businesses had to strike a balance between two competing priorities: public health and personal privacy. Some actions aimed at limiting the virus’s transmission and maybe saving lives may have major human-rights consequences. 

While many public-health authorities do not necessitate data collecting, others may infringe on privacy concerns for people. Government authorities and businesses may find themselves on the horns of a dilemma, contemplating ways to stop the virus from spreading but also severely restricting the rights and freedoms of the people whose lives they aim to safeguard. This calls for the need to formulate stringent Data Privacy Laws so that the sensitive personal data collected is safeguarded.

The Seminar aims to examine and analyze the Data Protection and Data Privacy in today’s times. The International Seminar will be attended by various international delegates and speakers as also representatives from the national Diaspora representing the stakeholders in the digital ecosystem and alive web. These would include representatives from the Central Government & State Governments, various Ministries, Law Enforcement Agencies, Police, Business, Information Technology, Corporate Sector, Academicians, Scholars, Service Providers, International Organizations and distinguished thought leaders.


To provide a platform for stakeholder like organizations working in international and national level, legislatures, civil societies, researchers, practitioners, academicians, activists and policy makers to deliberate and discuss on what is required to build strategies and to address the constraints in inclusive practices towards betterment of the society.
