As Data Security Council of India was created by NASSCOM under its 4E objective, it presents itself with a unique proposition of being an association of IT/BPO specifically looking at security and privacy practices of the industry. DSCI also forayed into the user companies like banks, telecom and eGovernance as most of their work are outsourced to IT/BPO sector. One of the primary objective of DSCI is to provide thought Leadership by means of carrying out various research projects and Industry Surveys and provides view points on the state of practices being followed by the industry, in addition provides recommendation based on the market and inputs from expert communities.
With the above objective in mind, DSCI needs to work closely with Industry leaders and take their perspective from the initial stages to finalization of the work. DSCI thus formed a Project Advisory Group to guide DSCI on the activities to be undertaken, provide valuable inputs and validate the outcome of the study.
DSCI presents a unique proposition as its works in a multi stakeholder environment having representation from varied user groups, industry verticals, functions, which have different expectations. Since, the content and work produced by DSCI are for the consumption of the industry, it needs to reflect the current trends and understanding should be outcome based and focuses on critical issues relating to the Indian context as well as the industry. Hence, the role of Project Advisory Group becomes crucial for the success of any study/research/survey conducted by DSCI.
