The introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation in 2018 marked a significant milestone in the evolution of data protection law. The effects of the GDPR have been felt far beyond the European Union and the European Economic Area.
Interact Law members jointly created this new Data Privacy Publication. This guide provides an introduction to the GDPR and general information on complimentary national laws which have been adopted by many EU Member States.
It goes on to consider significant cases that have come before EU national courts and fines which have been imposed by EU national data protection regulators. This guide goes on to highlight data privacy laws that have been adopted in a number of other jurisdictions, including the UK, the US, China and India.
Many other jurisdictions have been heavily influenced by the GDPR when implementing new, or updating existing, data privacy laws. In a world where international transfers of data take on ever greater significance, the extent to which other countries’ data protection laws provide for comparable safeguards to the GDPR cannot not be overlooked.
