Show Summary Details


This chapter gives an introduction to the worldwide data protection regulatory landscape and the different types of regulatory systems. It provides an overview of the basic principles of the data protection directive (and the changes envisaged by the Proposed Regulation), as knowledge of these principles is required for a proper understanding of the Binding Corporate Rules regime. The APEC Privacy Framework is also discussed as a representative of a data protection system based on an organizational approach rather than a territorial approach.
