Global Surveillance Law Comparison Guide
Companies around the world are confronted with questions on how to comply with the different laws and data access requests in various jurisdictions, particularly after the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) noted concerns regarding reports of indiscriminate mass surveillance by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) in the United States.
Attempts to analyse the state of surveillance laws in individual jurisdictions within the EEA and elsewhere have proven to be difficult, as actual practices of intelligence authorities are cloaked in secrecy and laws are complex and fragmented in this area.
Our 2016 Global Surveillance Law Comparison Guide aims to shed some light on these issues, providing a global overview of current government surveillance and data access practices in 39 countries. The Heat Maps include jurisdictional information on :
- Surveillance for an Economic Purpose
- Data Subject Notifications
- Right to Court Review Publicised Cases
- Challenge to Orders
- Liability for Disclosure
