NEW DELHI: WhatsApp on Wednesday announced a partnership with The Indian School of Public Policy, India’s first programme in the theory and practice of public policy, technology product design and management.

The company said the partnership will bring a series of privacy design workshops co-hosted by Facebook founded Trust, Transparency and Control Labs (TCC Labs) to future policy makers. The workshops will kick off on September 17 to explore the importance and practice of privacy-centric design to help technology make a positive impact on society.

Will Cathcart, the global head of WhatsApp was in Mumbai to announce this partnership during a discussion with Indian startups and entrepreneurs hosted at Innov8. During the session, Cathcart discussed how designing products with privacy as a key principle is critical for building successful consumer and business products.

“WhatsApp was built to help people stay in touch with friends and family as well as connect with businesses. Because people share some of their most personal needs and moments on WhatsApp, we’re committed to helping people in India have private conversations with others that matter to them,” said Cathcart. “We believe our partnership with Indian School of Public Policy will help future policy makers understand that designing products with privacy as a core tenet helps deliver the fundamental right to privacy people should have in today’s digital world.”

Luis Miranda, founder director of Indian School of Public Policy said she is glad to be partnering with WhatsApp and TTC Labs to help her students better understand privacy centric product design.

“Facebook founded TTC Labs to drive innovation in people-centered approaches to privacy and data. Companies, governments and academic institutions around the world are seeing the value of applying innovative design-led approaches to pressing policy challenges, said Dan Hayden, TTC Labs Lead. “We’re delighted to partner with Indian School of Public Policy and support their work to train the next generation of innovative policy leaders.”
