Webinar Summary

Data Privacy Accountability in Latin America

Thursday, 31st of May

Event Timings:

12:00 - 1:00 PM Brasilia Time

Format: 45-minute presentation, 15-minute live audience Q&A


Data protection compliance is a key consideration for any organization doing business in Latin America (LATAM). Most LATAM countries have a relatively strong data protection framework. But the legal requirements vary, in some cases significantly, from country to country.

This webinar will discuss how more and more LATAM countries are driven towards accountability models and what building a privacy program, incorporating accountability, can look like. We’ll explore the principles, requirements, and data rights established under different country’s data protection laws—and look at some of the recent regulatory activity to help you understand how the law is being enforced.

The panel will also discuss how technology can help you overcome the key data protection challenges presented by the LATAM region’s compliance regime.

Join this webinar to learn:

- How LATAM countries are driven towards accountability
- How to build your data privacy program incorporating accountability
- How technology can help you
