The sixth edition of the PLC Cross-border Data Protection Handbook is a comprehensive guide to the law in this practice area worldwide.
This edition's two cross-border chapters explore topical data protection issues in detail. The chapter on Data protection compliance policies (www.practicallaw.com/1-502-0568) examines data protection compliance policies issues for companies operating in more than one jurisdiction, both inside and outside the EU, which intend to set up a data protection compliance system.
