Consilienc​e 2013 (Conferenc​e on Law and Technology​) - National Law School of India University​, Bangalore

The National Law School of India University, Bangalore is India’s premier legal institution. Set up in 1987 to improve the standard of legal education in India, the University periodically organizes lectures and symposiums which aim to discuss and debate the most relevant legal issues of the day. Acknowledging the contribution it has made to the discipline of Law in such a short span of time, it is sometimes also referred to as the Harvard of the East.
The Law and Technology Committee of NLSIU is a student committee actively engaged in promoting awareness in the field of Technology Law. The Committee is organizing a conference on ‘Data Protection and Cyber Security in India’ on 25th and 26th of May, 2013 (Saturday and Sunday).
The focus of Consilience 2013 is on the legal and policy issues relating to Data Protection and Cyber Security in India. Select keynote speakers, including legal experts, policy-makers and industry stakeholders will address the delegates on issues earmarked for them after intensive research. Apart from making an effective contribution towards greater understanding of the subject, we envisage this exchange of ideas leading upto a recommendation paper/declaration putting forth certain recommendations/suggestions/concerns pertaining to Data Protection in India to the Government of India.
The Conference will see some of the best Lawyers and Jurists in India speak on different issues which surround Data Protection and Cyber Security. The Conference is co- branded with Center for Internet and Society (www.cis-india.org).On the two days of the conference, we will have discussions in which representatives of all interest holders will get involved in a meaningful discussion which we hope will ultimately lead to better policy formulation.
