In a few months, India will pass the GDPR-equivalent law - the Personal Data Protection Bill (PDPB). Data science teams tend to be the most extensive users of data; their work impacts the users at much larger scale than the traditional analytics. This raises a number of questions:
- What should data scientists know about the PDPB law? What are the implications on data science?
- Does the law say anything about impact beyond privacy? What, if any, are the FAccT (Fairness, Accountability, Transparency) requirements under the current law?
- How does one cope with ambiguity and diversity in the privacy requirements across geographies?
- What kind of new processes and mechanisms should data scientists now plan for and build?
- What do you foresee coming down the line - algorithmic accountability, product liability?
This conversation is relevant for companies and practitioners building for compliance, including:
1. Vendor contracts
2. Local storage, including rules and processes that apply to third parties
3. Legal access to data by cloud providers
