5 July 2017: Dinner conversation and Q&A with Rob Sherman

Rob Sherman

Arun Sukumar, Observer Research Foundation 

The conversation will highlight global trends in privacy and data protection regimes, and the role of companies like Facebook in contributing – both through its platforms as well as policy interventions – to these trends. Facebook has over 184 million monthly users in India with 95% accessing the website through their mobile phones. WhatsApp has more than 200 million users in India, making the country its largest market in the world. Facebook will be a crucial interlocutor as India’s digital economy grows rapidly over the next few years -- with the growth in connectivity, the rolling out of public hotspots by Facebook across the country, and the government’s push for adoption of digital payments, privacy and data protection will need special attention. With Facebook and other online service providers expanding its user base and services in India, privacy and security features of their platforms will assume centre stage and even influence its future growth in the Indian market.
