'Trends to Watch 2019: GDPR Goes Global' by Logan Finucan

Logan Finucan, senior policy analyst at Access Partnership, writes, “The European Union’s globally applicable General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has set the global benchmark for data protection standards. In 2019, it will continue to reverberate far beyond Europe; more countries around the world will adopt GDPR-like standards, often creating headaches for global business in the process.”

He notes that the GDPR helps to establish the idea of data protection as a fundamental right. Countries can emulate the standard, such as Brazil’s new data protection framework and policy proposals in India.

“Companies have scrambled in the past year to achieve compliance amid an uncertain enforcement climate. The focus now is getting the right type of consent from citizens and proving good faith efforts upfront to regulators, absorbing substantial time and energy,” he writes. “In a twist that would have been unthinkable even a few years ago, we are now seeing the EU set the terms of the policy debate even in the US, which is in the early stages of developing a long-deferred comprehensive consumer data protection regime at the federal level.”
