A GLOBAL ROADMAP TO PERSONAL DATA PROTECTION ——Asia Pacifìc, Europe & USA (First Edition)

View translated version
With the endless march of technology and an increasingly connected world, protecting personal data is clearly more important than ever. In response, governments around the world have focused on enacting legislation to keep up with the fast pace of change. The EU’s recent implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is just the latest development in this crucial area of law. Outside the EU, however, there is little uniformity in how different regions and countries protect personal data. To help make sense of this, Meritas® has produced this guide by leveraging its top quality member firms from around the world, specifically our firms in Asia Pacific, Europe and the USA.
