The Council of Europe announced Mexico has joined the Convention for the Protection of Individuals with regard to Automatic Processing of Personal Data. Mexico is the sixth non-European country to join “Convention 108,” along with Uruguay, Senegal, Tunisia, Cabo Verde and Mauritius. Convention 108 is an international treaty giving individuals personal data protection rights while also aiming to prevent abuse when data is processed. Mexico also agreed to join the Council of Europe’s Additional Protocol on trans-border data flows and supervisory authorities, which will go into effect Oct. 1. Argentina, Morocco and Burkina Faso have also been invited to, and will likely join, Convention 108.
