Companies, lawyers, privacy officers, compliance managers, as well as human resources, marketing and IT professionals are increasingly facing privacy issues. While plenty of information is freely available, it can be difficult to grasp a problem quickly, without getting lost in details and advocacy. This is where Determann’s Field Guide to Data Privacy Law comes into its own – identifying key issues and providing concise practical guidance for an increasingly complex field shaped by rapid change in international laws, technology and society.

This fifth edition reflects significant changes since 2019, such as new laws in California and other jurisdictions, the demise of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield, new EU Standard Contractual Clauses, data residency requirements, machine learning, data monetization trends, cloud adoption and the Internet of Things.

Step-by-step direction on drafting privacy documentation is provided, with ‘how-to’ suggestions for tasks and projects.

Critical Acclaim
‘Grounded firmly in reality and practicality, Determann’s fifth edition of the Field Guide delivers a valuable “map and compass” to practitioners seeking to navigate data protection compliance at their own pace. While spanning multiple jurisdictions, the Guide keeps the practitioner on course by drawing on the most up-to-date and leading standards governing key aspects of data protection and security. Nobody that follows this Guide should end up lost.’
– Helen Dixon, Commissioner for Data Protection, Data Protection Commission, Dublin, Ireland

‘This new edition of Professor Lothar Determann's book is an invaluable contribution to understanding all the recent transformations in the regulations on personal data protection at an international level. It is a work that, in addition to its relevance for the theoretical discussions of the aspects it deals with, becomes a practical tool for those who must advise both the public and private sectors on issues related to the protection of personal data.’
– Eduardo Bertoni, Regional Office for South America of the Inter-American Institute of Human Rights, Uruguay, NYU Law in Buenos Aires, and formerly Argentine Data Protection Authority, Argentina
