Analyzing the complexities of privacy and data security laws around the globe and providing a global context and perspective on international privacy and data security obligations for employers
In today’s global market, employers share and move more information than ever before as they centralize human resources processes to achieve greater efficiency and cost cutting. For employers operating on a global scale and the attorneys advising them, the complications are, as a result, all the more problematic. Over 65 countries now have their own data protection laws regulating the collection, use, transfer, and disclosure of personal information. The complex and sometimes conflicting obligations imposed by these different laws have made compliance a struggle for companies operating in more than one country.
Employers who fail to satisfactorily address workplace privacy and data security issues can find themselves precluded from legally sharing information with affiliated entities, subjected to fines and scrutiny by data protection regulators, and becoming the object of negative publicity. How does an organization begin to find a solution to the balancing act of complying with the myriad of international data protection laws and still running a business cost-effectively?
With the updated Second Edition of BNA Books’ Global Employee Privacy and Data Security Law, employers can successfully navigate the waters of international data security law. This treatise is designed specifically to help privacy professionals, human resources professionals, and attorneys understand international workplace privacy and data security laws and their relation to U.S. law and to help ensure compliance with all requirements.
