In September 2014, we celebrated the fifth anniversary of Global Privacy and Security Law. In the past five years the numbers of laws, regulations, standards and guidelines, and cases regarding the protection of personal data around the world have increased dramatically. As a result, Global Privacy and Security Law has almost doubled in size, growing from about 2000 pages to more than 3500 pages.
Supplement 16 contains updates to twenty one chapters. A new chapter on Indonesia has been added. This chapter examines the unique legal data protection regime in Indonesia. The chapter on Russia has been updated to examine the interesting legislative development whereby those companies conducting business in Russia will be, once the legislation is enacted, legally obliged to process and store the data of the citizens of the Russian Federation on servers located within the Russian Federation.
The other significant updates in Supplement 16 are highlighted below.
