The Justice BN Srikrishna-led committee for a data protection framework for India is expected to submit its recommendations for a draft bill before the end of this month.

There has been a growing concern around data security globally, especially after the data breach incident at social networking giant Facebook where personal information of over 87 million individuals was harvested by data mining firm Cambridge Analytica.

Many countries, including India, are in the process of strengthening data protection framework in the face of exponential growth in data that has brought with it challenges around cyber-security.
