Privacy regulation FAQs
In response to the rapid uptick in breaches involving personal data, the public’s expectations of privacy are evolving. More privacy regulations are coming into effect at the local, national, international, and sectoral levels. In addition to the EU’s GDPR, various other privacy laws were passed including the CCPA, CPRA, Brazil’s General Data Privacy Law, and India’s Personal Data Protection Bill. As these privacy regulations come into effect, companies are quickly recognizing that effective privacy management is not just a key compliance activity but also a key factor in business enablement in the digital economy.
