Data Privacy Day

Today is Data Privacy Day – a day for everyone – private citizens as well as organisations – to remember how much more there is to be done to embed privacy in organisational practices.

The last 12 months have seen significant changes across the world, in terms of data privacy law – most recently, the adoption of a second privacy law, CCRA, in California and the emergence of UK GDPR (as part of the DPA 2018) following Britain’s exit from the EU. The next 12 months will bring changes in Canada, more GDPR-like privacy laws across the US, and further developments across Asia Pacific. We may even see the EU’s e-Privacy Regulation move ahead!
