The Brazilian Chamber of Deputies is currently considering a bill that would add data localization requirements to the country's General Data Protection Law. Bill 4723/20 would require personal data to be stored and maintained in repositories within the country. The proposed bill would also prohibit any relatives, spouses or partners to be appointed to the board of directors of the country's National Data Protection Authority, noting any board candidates must undergo a background check. Editor's note: IAPP Westin Fellow Sarah Rippy recently provided an overview of the LGPD.
