In view of this, Ramanuj Mukherjee, CEO of LawSikho, reiterated the importance of strengthening the cyber security and data protection infrastructure in a statement.  He said, “The robust digital penetration has not just opened up new opportunities globally but has also amplified the concern around data security and privacy of users. It has become more critical than ever before to protect the sensitive details and information of the clients and the employees of an organization.”

Talking about the collaboration, Dr H C Jovan Didier, Professor of Swiss School of Management said, “With the rise of digitalisation globally and India’s innovation power, the need to be educated and trained well on ethics, best practices, and grounded theories becomes vital to the world’s progress. This programme is designed for future leaders, using a solid foundation of academic content combined with the newest insights on privacy management and data protection.”
