Americas Focus: Caribbean Data Protection & Privacy Regulations

June 22, 2021 4:00 PM

The Caribbean has seen critical issues in regard to its data privacy regulations and has been slow in adopting comprehensive laws that provide formal legal structures for data transfers and protection. Currently, fifteen privacy laws have been passed, with Jamaica being the most recent by passing its Data Protection Act, 2020. The Government of Trinidad and Tobago are currently amending their own privacy law in accordance with the GDPR. This panel will discuss the future of the Caribbean’s Data Protection Regime and the possibility of a collaborative regional approach towards data protection, as well as harmonisation with international standards.
