Officials from Department of IT BT attended seminar on EU’s GPDR (General Data Protection Regulation) organised by Consulate of Belgium at World Trade Centre, Bengaluru, on 26 March 2018 to understand how tenets of the regulation may be used as a reference for creating IP and Data protection framework  for Karnataka. A priority under Innovate Karnataka platform launch by the Department, the framework is meant to help companies involved with new and emerging technologies defined under any Indian law yet to innovate, while ensuring that customers and their data are safe.  Legal experts from Belgium and Karnataka interacted with each other to provide a deeper insight into the scenarios in both places from a policy perspective.
