DSCI is pleased to release and share its Annual Report 2014-15: Data Protection Outlook. Leveraging Data Protection to Enhance Trust in the Digital Economy.

The report outlines the achievements, major activities and initiatives undertaken by DSCI. Perhaps one of the achievements was the launch of DSCI Certified Privacy Professional (DCPP©), a mass credentialing program in privacy, aimed to develop a stronger privacy workforce in India. In tune with our objectives, we also played a broader, more inclusive role in global policy issues; expanded our thought leadership activities; strengthened capacity-building programs in combating cybercrimes; entrenched the need for entrepreneurship in cyber security through DSCI Innovation Box and reinforced the perspectives on cyber security and data protection at the 9th NASSCOM-DSCI Annual Information Security Summit.
