So as we know it, GDPR is going to affect a lot of Indian companies in many ways, but the key ways in which it affects Indian companies is by restricting their growth and business potential.

The Indian culture is such that CEOs are just not ready to comply and GDPR is not a light regulation. It places enhanced obligations on all companies to consider privacy as a key risk and monitor it accordingly.
