More than ever it is crucial that organisations protect and safeguard personal information and manage their legal responsibilities in relation to processing personal data consistent with applicable data protection legislation. A well-constructed and comprehensive compliance program can provide a solution to these various competing interests and so represents an effective risk-management tool.
This handbook from DLA Piper sets out an overview of the applicable privacy and data protection laws and regulations across 58 different jurisdictions to provide a guide through this complex area of compliance.
The handbook offers a high-level snapshot of selected features of national laws as they currently stand. It is intended to provide a quick overview of features of data protection law that are of greatest practical significance to businesses, such as international data transfer restrictions, security obligations, enforcement and breach notification requirements.
