Data Protection and Compliance is ensuring that sensitive customer data that your company has collected from your customers is protected, organized, and managed properly so that your company meets all of the legal and governmental regulations where you do business.
As more businesses and their customers transact daily online, the importance of privacy rights and consumer data protection has become increasingly more important and recognized.
The most recognized of these regulations is the European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which was adopted in 2016. GDPR is recognized as the gold standard dealing with data protection and privacy rights in Europe. Some other examples of this type of legislation are California passing the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) taking effect in June 2018, and Canada passing the Consumer Privacy Protection Act (CPPA) in November 2020.
In the Caribbean, the Cayman Islands Data Protection Law came into effect in September 2019. In addition, Barbados and Jamaica passed data protection and privacy legislation in 2019 and 2020, respectively, which could be enacted in 2021. These regulations can affect your business financially as non-compliance could result in fines and disruptions to your business.
If your company does business with any countries or territories where data protection legislation exists, your business could be adversely affected.
