BakerHostetler’s International Compendium of Data Privacy Laws

BakerHostetler's International Compendium of Data Privacy Laws

March 2013

Welcome

Privacy and data protection issues confront all organizations—whether you handle employee information, credit card data, sensitive financial information, or trade secrets. Securing data is a daunting task that is further complicated by cross-border transfer issues and the differences in privacy laws around the world. These laws are complex and can pose myriad and sometimes conflicting obligations to a multinational enterprise. Our practitioners are experienced at guiding our clients through this maze of global privacy norms.

The BakerHostetler Privacy and Data Protection Team has developed a prompt and practical approach. We have a comprehensive international network of expert service providers who are responsive when our clients require support and guidance through a data security event.

This compendium represents our global experience in this field. While it is not a substitute for legal advice, it is a reference guide that outlines the basic requirements in place when dealing with international data breach so that you can know what immediate steps to take, and what questions you need to ask to minimize your company’s exposure.

Our clients call us because we combine our knowledge with the practical experience we have gained through handling over 400 privacy events and working with our international partners around the world.
