While it's true privacy and data protection laws are undergoing shifts in many parts of the world, this is especially true for Latin America, where there is no shortage of legislative action. Brazil approved its general data protection law last year, and it will come into effect in early 2020. Just as the U.S. is seeing with the California Consumer Privacy Act, Brazil's law is now being amended in all kinds of ways ahead of implementation. Amendments to the LGPD, the acronym used for its formal name in Portuguese, will also establish a new and independent national data protection authority, and those approvals are expected to reach the country's Senate within weeks. Recorded at the IAPP's Global Privacy Summit recently, this episode of The Privacy Advisor Podcast features IAPP Managing Director for Latin America Rosa Franco Velázquez, CIPP/US, based in Mexico and Dino Santa Rosa of Brazil who discuss the legal landscape in both Mexico and Brazil and what that means for the privacy profession in each jurisdiction.
