It provides a quick overview of the aspects of data protection law that are often of great practical significance to businesses. International data transfer restrictions, security obligations and breach notification requirements are among the topics covered.

The Handbook also features a section on enforcement – always an important consideration in assessing regulatory risk in any jurisdiction.  To view the Handbook, click here.
