Data Security Council of India (DSCI), a section 25 not-for-profit company, was setup as an independent Self Regulatory Organization (SRO) by NASSCOM, to promote data protection, develop security and privacy codes & standards and encourage the IT/BPO industry to implement the same. DSCI has developed Best Practices for Data Protection that are in line with global standards and cover emerging disciplines of security and privacy.
