Cross-Border Data Protection
In recent years, dozens of cross-border data protection laws have been passed to ensure the safe transfer and processing of personal data around the world. 71% of countries have adopted some form of data protection and privacy legislation, and another 9% have draft legislation on the books.
While these data privacy laws vary in their exact mechanisms and enforcement, most require companies to implement specific data retention policies, report data breaches to the relevant government agency, and receive the clear, informed consent of data subjects. Most also require specific security measures for cross-border data transfers and for processing personal data in the cloud.
