Cheat sheet to data privacy laws worldwide
Hello. It's been sometime since my last post. I've used my time away to revisit how I will be using this website moving forward, as I step back from privacy consulting.
I've decided to maintain my website and keep blogging mainly about privacy, but also on developments in law and technology. As I try to get back on track with my blogging, I am sharing with you this resource on privacy legislation in different jurisdictions. The table also shows information on the following:
title of the key law
years of the original law and the current version
membership of the country in regional groupings
sector coverage (whether public, private, or both)
name of the data protection authority
membership of the data protection authority in data protection groupings
The resource was prepared by Graham Greenleaf, Professor of Law & Information Systems, University of New South Wales. This link brings you to the SSRN page of the document. You may need an account to download.
