Today's technologies mean that it is even easier for companies to collect, copy and transfer personal data around the world. At the same time, the introduction of a wide range of privacy and security laws in a number of jurisdictions around the world impose complex and often inconsistent privacy and data protection standards impacting on multinational companies.

Baker McKenzie is delighted to announce that the 2017 Global Privacy Handbook is now available. It gives us a glimpse of notable privacy developments and emerging privacy issues and trends in 58 jurisdictions across the globe. The newest edition has been expanded to cover the EU-US Privacy Shield and the EU GDPR in 13 Game Changers.

This continues to be an immensely popular publication, especially due to the escalating risks associated with the implementation and management of global databases, increasing outsourcing and transactional issues, litigation, internal investigation and crisis management concerns, all of which can trigger a variety of privacy compliance issues.
