“As India positions itself as the world’s leading digital economy, this breach is indeed a cause for disappointment and regret. Its impact extends to over 50% of the population. The enforcement of India’s Data Privacy Act (DPDP) now places a significant spotlight on confidentiality, integrity, and accountability. Given the speculation that the source of the breach may be the government entity ICMR, it prompts a discussion about accountability within government institutions, an aspect that was not well captured in the DPDP. The majority of Indians are not typically well-versed in privacy matters, and interactions with government, quasi-government, financial institutions, and service providers often involve sharing physical copies of Aadhar/Passport without clear accountability for how this data is stored, used, or protected. I hope this fuels the debate on government and its institutions’ accountability in regard to its citizens Personally Identifiable Information (PII) data.” Kiran Vangaveti, Founder & CEO, BluSapphire
