Global Comprehensive Privacy Law Mapping Chart

Last Updated: August 2021

Comprehensive data protection laws exist across the globe. While each law is different, there are many commonalities in terms of the rights, obligations, and enforcement provisions. The Westin Research Center has created this chart mapping several comprehensive data protection laws, including the laws in the U.S., to assist our members in understanding how data protection is being approached around the world.

Our intent is to add to this chart and update it as laws are amended and other laws come into force. As always, we appreciate input from our members. If you have comments about the mapping or believe additional information should be included, please share it with Cathy Cosgrove at ccosgrove@iapp.org.
