In this first Privacy Tracker legislative roundup of 2016, read about laws passed and enacted in China, Colombia, and the Netherlands. Also, Germany’s Bundestag has adopted a law allowing consumer advocates to sue companies for violating the data protection law, and in Cyprus the president wants amendments to a recently passed communications privacy bill. In the U.S., Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., has reintroduced his anti-stalker app bill and government officials are supposed to be deciding soon on whether the TSA will start enforcing the Real ID Act — which is 10-years old now. And who could forget about the GDPR? We’ve got lots of coverage to help you navigate those waters, too. (IAPP member login required.)
