Welcome to the Global Data Privacy & Security Handbook

Managing risk and crisis in an information-driven digital world

Data is a critical asset as businesses seek to stay afloat and remain competitive in today’s globally connected economy in light of COVID-19. The global pandemic and corresponding economic disruptions have increased the value of remote servicing and teleworking, and reinforced the focus on data and the macro trends associated with digitalization.

Adopting these new technologies for both remote working and business continuity mechanisms give rise to concerns over data breaches and other risks on the side of employees and employers. More than ever before, companies are facing pressure to put extraordinary measures in place to protect personal and business data and to stay agile and resilient against the outbreak and into the future.

Our Global Data Privacy & Security Handbook is updated on an ongoing basis to help you keep up with the dynamic legal landscape. We provide detailed overviews and allow a comparative perspective of the increasingly complex and sophisticated data privacy and security standards in over 50 countries.
