Glad to share our 'GDPR Preparedness Survey Report’ with our member fraternity. Data Security Council of India (DSCI) and Deloitte Touché Tohmatsu India LLP (DTTILLP, or Deloitte) jointly conducted a survey to study the preparedness of Indian organisations with the requirements mandated by the European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

With the
 objectives of generating awareness, assessing GDPR readiness, understanding the evolving best practices and learnings, and to take stock of gaps (if any) and identify improvement  areas, DSCI and Deloitte have released this report encapsulating the survey findings that will enable adoption and sharing of best practices and delineation of the next steps for scaling up GDPR readiness.


The report explores a wide range of drivers, capabilities, leading practices, and offer insights while being GDPR complaint; such as GDPR’s extra territorial coverage which impacts organisations beyond the EU, including Indian organisations who process personal data of EU data subjects.


The survey provided participants with multiple objectives and reasons to be GDPR ready, and the top three reasons, chalked out by respondents, for Indian organisations to be GDPR ready are:


The survey results and insights presented are based on responses from 58 participants from small to large sized organisations and diverse sectors such as IT/BPM, BFSI, Telecommunications, Manufacturing, Pharmaceuticals, Healthcare, and Oil & Energy.

Read the full report to have a better understanding of the Indian GDPR landscape and we hope it serves as a meaningful read.
