‘With the proliferation and diversity of privacy risks and international regulatory controls, and the increasingly obvious intersection of data security and privacy, no company can afford to overlook the importance of an up to date and wel-tailored global compliance program. For companies doing business in the cloud or transacting with consumers, a well-considered international data privacy compliance program is not only a critical legal and liability control – it is fundamental to earning and maintaining the trust of your customers. In this comprehensive yet concise “Field Guide”, Professor Determann has managed to consolidate an enormous breadth of legal requirements and best practices knowledge into a single, definitive reference that should be quite accessible even to non-privacy professionals. As general counsel of a multinational public company, I consider Determann’s Field Guide to Data Privacy Law to be a pragmatic and indispensable reference in improving our compliance program, and highly recommend it for anyone looking for clear, practical guidance on establishing or improving their data privacy program!’
