Most of the business thrive on data and as part of their operations they collect or receive, knowingly or unknowingly, personally identifiable data about individuals. Most of the countries have enacted data privacy laws in some form or the other to regulate how such data can be collected, the use of such data, how data subjects are to be informed, how data can be transferred, rights that a data subject has in relation to such data and what control a data subject has over data. Non-compliance with such laws may lead to fines, legal proceedings, blacklisting of businesses in certain jurisdictions and most importantly loss of reputation and goodwill due to lack of trust of the clients. Traversing through such laws can be daunting, but all businesses that deal with data should be familiar and compliant with the data privacy laws that affect their businesses. Thus, establishment of robust legal framework for data privacy and protection becomes pertinent.

How can companies ensure compliance with data privacy regulations?
Implementation of myriad privacy regulations in each jurisdiction across the globe has made it difficult for the companies to adopt uniform policies. Hence, a comprehensive and explicit understanding of data protection and privacy laws is crucial for all businesses while exchanging any data or information with other entities.
Most of the companies are unaware of their role while collecting, processing, or storing data. The assessment of the company as a data controller or a data processer dictates its obligations in terms of requisite compliances, data breaches, risk mitigations, etc.
