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.
