Pramod Bhasin, the founder of Genpact and current Chairman of ICRIER, has been appointed as the new Chairman of the Data Security Council of India (DSCI), effective from April 1, 2023. 

Bhasin takes over the position from Rajendra S Pawar, the Chairman and Co-Founder of NIIT Group, who served as the DSCI Chairman for the past three years.

Renowned as a trailblazer in the industry, Bhasin founded Genpact in 1996 and played a pivotal role in propelling the Business Process Industry in India to global recognition during his tenure until 2011. 

Together with Vinayak Godse, the CEO of DSCI, the newly appointed leadership aims to make cybersecurity a cornerstone of the new era of digitisation.

“As we continue to face ever-evolving threats and challenges in the realm of cybersecurity, it is more important than ever that we stay at the forefront of innovation and expertise. I am committed to fostering collaboration and sharing knowledge to help ensure the security of our digital world. I look forward to working with the DSCI team led by Vinayak Godse, who have already done excellent work to build the foundations for DSCI,” said Bhasin.

Godse added, “DSCI team welcomes Pramod Bhasin, a pioneer of the business process industry in India, to realise the possibilities thrown by cyber security and privacy in this technology driven decade (Techade). His experience and guidance would help us scale our effort not only matching to the expectations but also adapt and accelerate our efforts to play a decisive role in a world that will have numerous breakthrough technologies and rapid digitisation.”

DSCI, a not-for-profit industry body on data protection in India, was established by Nasscom with a commitment towards making the cyberspace safe, secure and trusted by establishing best practices, standards and initiatives in cyber security and privacy. 

DSCI works together with the government and their agencies, law enforcement agencies, industry sectors including IT-BPM, BFSI, CII, telecom, industry associations, data protection authorities and think tanks for public advocacy, thought leadership, capacity building, and outreach initiatives.
