Web Conference - Keeping Up with Data Privacy Developments in Latin America

Broadcast Date: Thursday, May 16, 2013
1 – 2:30 p.m. EDT
Amidst a dramatic uptick in Internet access and usage, Latin American nations are turning their focus to data privacy. From 2000 to 2008, only Argentina and Uruguay created comprehensive data privacy regimes. Yet in just a two-year span from 2010 to 2012, another six countries—Mexico, Colombia, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Peru and Trinidad and Tobago—have adopted comprehensive data privacy laws of their own. More laws and regulations are sure to follow, including perhaps in key markets like Brazil. Join a discussion of developments in Latin America with a leading Brazilian lawyer who served as head of the government agency in charge of consumer protection policy and a U.S.-based practitioner advising U.S. and EU multinationals on their data protection interests in Latin America.
What you’ll take away:
•    An understanding of foundational privacy principles in Latin America
•    An overview of recent privacy developments in the region
•    An analysis of trends and the possible trajectory of data protection in the region, including in Brazil
