Following spate of high profile cyberattacks and data breaches in India CyBourn and TechLegis join forces to help companies meet cybersecurity challenges and adapt to the evolving regulatory landscape

November 26 2019

Global Cybersecurity firm CyBourn and specialist Technology and Cyber focused Indian law firm TechLegis Advocates & Solicitors announced a partnership to help and assist Indian multi-national companies on meeting evolving cybersecurity challenges in light of the recent spate of high profile cyber-attacks and data breaches in the country, including the cyber-attack on Kudankulam Nuclear plant, the Pegasus spyware attack on WhatsApp and the 1.3 million Indian credit card data breach.

A series of activities in India are planned to begin the week of November 25, 2019, starting with a panel at the INBA conference. TechLegis Advocates & Solicitors and CyBourn are also organizing stakeholder briefings and cybersecurity awareness campaign followed by a series of webinars on cybersecurity and GDPR compliance in early 2020.

“Cybersecurity regulation has been changing across the world. Organizations operating internationally need to adapt their internal governance system to meet legal requirements, in addition to strengthening their internal information security framework. This is why we have decided to partner with TechLegis Advocates & Solicitors, in order to be able to offer advisory services for Indian companies to adapt to the evolving regulatory landscape,” explained Ashwin Jayaram, CyBourn’s CEO.

Global shared services organisations, app developers, fintech and online retailers processing EU personal data that is shared with other non-EU organisations will have the chance to learn all about the latest developments in global data privacy for the EU and India.

“India is currently in the midst of a cyber-security crisis which is getting worse due to the lack of awareness and proper regulatory policy, while the Govt. is in the process of finalizing the Personal Data Privacy legislation. However, Indian companies operating and providing services in Europe and elsewhere are under obligations to comply with the local data protection laws and cyber-security regulations. Due to the fast-evolving technology and regulatory landscape companies often fail to keep up with the changes and ensure compliance. It is for-this-reason TechLegis decided to launch this initiative jointly with CyBourn from Europe to raise awareness and also offer a unique opportunity for such entities to interact with international experts”, highlighted Salman Waris, Managing Partner at TechLegis Advocates & Solicitors.

From November 25 - 29, 2019, Executives from TechLegis and CyBourn will be available to talk to Indian businesses on data privacy and cybersecurity issues. Expressions of interest are to be directed to [email protected] or [email protected]
