Reflections on information management within the legal and regulatory arena

DLA Piper publishes global handbook on Data Privacy Laws…

Posted by Johnny Lee on April 23, 2012

The safeguarding of personal information by organizations has never been more difficult or more necessary.  This is true not merely because of the relatively unchecked trends of data proliferation and data portability but also because of the increasingly complicated legal and regulatory landscape.

Organizations of all sizes are struggling with this, but multi-national companies have a unique set of challenges in trying to identify —much less reconcile — the myriad of rules, regulations, and laws related to the protection of personal data.  This is what makes DLA Piper’s subject contribution such a welcome addition to the compliance literature.

The DLA Piper Information Law Team have published a handbook with “an overview of the applicable privacy and data protection laws and regulations across 58 different jurisdictions, including a section on enforcement.  Edited by Cameron Craig, Paul McCormack, Jim Halpert, Kate Lucente, and Arthur Cheuk, the DLA Piper 2011/2012 Data Protection Laws of the World Handbook is available here.”
