Symbiosis Law School, Hyderabad which was established in the year 2014 is a constituent of Symbiosis International (Deemed University), Pune. The concept of ‘Symbiosis’ is the brainchild of Dr. S.B. Mujumdar [Chancellor Symbiosis International (Deemed University)] and is nurtured on the principles of the Vedic thought, “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” which means ‘The World is One Family’. 

Symbiosis Law School, Hyderabad was established inheriting splendid novelty, dynamism and excellence in education of Symbiosis International University, Pune.

The Centre for Specialisation in Cyber Law Studies (CSCLS) is an in-house Centre established to research on different aspects of cyber law. The Centre intends to educate and spread awareness in Society by conducting various events and capsule courses.


The COVID-19 Pandemic accelerated the pace of global digitalization, owing to need-of-the-hour requirements and safety concerns. However, the almost complete replacement of traditional working methods by online methods led to many talking points. Sensitive, often secret data, became easily available and accessible to firms, organizations and criminals. The ambiguity surrounding ownership, usage and sharing of personal and non-personal data increased, since there was no particular regime in place governing the same. The common man is unaware as to what percentage of their data is used for legitimate purposes like marketing whereas what percentage of it is sold for illegal purposes like extortion and solicitation. Terms like ‘first-party data’ and ‘data breadth’ are foreign to a majority of internet users even in the technological era of today. The importance of data safety and related regulations cannot be over-emphasized, for the current scenario has no alternative in sight for decades to come, and the long pending status of the Personal Data Protection Bill, 2019 provides no relief to worried users and free-reigning organizations, whilst the world-view on data protection expands day-by-day.


The Centre for Specialisation in Cyber Law Studies (CSCLS) has always aimed to highlight and bring to the forefront noteworthy issues and subjects related to public importance. With this vision, the Centre aims to conduct a Three-Day Webinar Series on Data Regulation in India”. Spread across 3 days, there shall be 3 different sessions which shall provide an in-depth analysis of the usage, accessibility and multiplicity of online data, threats of absence of knowledge regarding data usage by individuals apart from the user, the Indian legislative scenario’s outlook on the same and ongoing discussions. The series shall end with a short examination, based on the information given in the 3 sessions, and only after its completion, the participants shall receive a certificate signifying their attendance. We envision to provide invaluable technical, legal knowledge as well as expert opinions regarding data utilization, transmission and Indian laws, or the lack of, related to data to participants.
