Mandate for localisation should not stifle innovation: Rishad Premji
Batting for a "balanced" approach for India's data protection framework, Nasscom President Rishad Premji has said the rules should ensure that innovation is not "stifled" by the focus on driving localisation.
He noted that while having a strong data security policy is important, it is also necessary to consider if localisation is the right solution.
"...I think we need to balance what is critical (data), what needs to reside (within India) exclusively, is localisation the right solution to security necessarily or not, and what is the trade off between innovation and growth... we have to think through those and balance those out fairly closely," Premji told
