05 Jul IBM Suggests Digital Trade Agreement Under India’s Data Privacy Law
IBM is reportedly expressing its support for a digital trade agreement under the proposed data privacy law currently being worked on by a committee under Justice BN Srikrishna.
IBM says that the agreement, which will permit data sharing on consent without compromising privacy, will promote innovation in various sectors including healthcare and agriculture.
IBM chief technology officer for India and South Asia, Prashant Pradhan, revealed that they have primarily recommended two things: ownership and privacy should rest with whoever owns the data, and that the flow and access of data be subject to a digital trade agreement.
