Global Data Protection and Privacy Law Developments, LGPD; Has Brazil’s Data Protection Law Done Enough to Date - What Does the Future Hold?

Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados (LGPD) is Brazil’s federal data privacy law that went into effect on September 18, 2020, with enforcement starting on August 1, 2021. With Brazil being a key market in Latin America for big US tech companies, it is thought that the LGPD has been a positive move forward for Brazil’s legal privacy framework. This panel will discuss this question around the positives, exploring whether LGPD has done enough to date and what the future holds?
