Global data protection and privacy compliance
Data protection and data privacy concepts around the globe vary and they need to be met in an international environment where international data processing and data transfers are a daily occurrence. Most companies will face new mandatory requirements, including performing privacy impact assessments and regular data compliance audits, notifying personal data breaches, and maintaining records of personal data activities.
