Around the world, policymakers are focusing on ways to improve privacy frameworks. More than 120 countries currently have a privacy or data protection law enacted. Significant developments in the European Union, with the General Data Protection Regulation becoming applicable in May 2018, have had an impact on US based organizations that conduct business globally and on how regulators around the world think about privacy frameworks. Global approaches to privacy protection differ based on different legal traditions. Still, there is significant common ground in the commitment to empowering individuals with respect to the collection and use of personal data, and to protecting people against harm from the use of their data. FPF closely follows developments in EU policymaking and regulation supported by our local office in Brussels, as well as developments in APAC, and Latin America. We keep our stakeholders informed of relevant changes, case-law, guidance, policies, and legal requirements, while also providing background and in-depth analysis in order to support them in being ahead of key developments globally. FPF’s global work is led by Dr. Gabriela Zanfir-Fortuna.
