In this Privacy Tracker series, we look at laws from across the globe and match them up against the EU General Data Protection Regulation. The aim is to help you determine how much duplication of operational effort you might avoid as you work to comply with multiple privacy and data protection laws worldwide. In this installment, Bruno Bioni, Maria Cecília Oliveira Gomes, and Renato Leite Monteiro, CIPP/E, CIPM, compare Brazil's General Data Protection Law and the GDPR. The authors contrast specific provisions in the laws, noting, "The Brazilian General Data Protection Law is very similar to the GDPR in context, structure and ultimate rationale — to protect the fundamental rights and freedoms of natural persons, especially the development of natural persons' personality. However, its differences make the law unique." Editor's Note: You can find a complete list of the articles in the GDPR matchup series in the IAPP Resource Center.
