After years of advocacy and pressure building, the government of Pakistan has finally made some headway towards the enactment of a data protection legislation. The ministry of Information Technology and Telecommunications has recently published the draft data protection bill on its website and is seeking comments and suggestions of different stakeholders through its website.
This research has been conducted by APC member Media Matters for Democracy to help different stakeholders understand how the corporate sector is currently responding to its data protection responsibilities. They hope that this baseline will help all stakeholders understand the context and the situation better in order to formulate conducive, forward looking recommendations and inputs, and that the corporates themselves will take this research positively and respond to the gaps that have been identified in this basic assessment.
