Glo­bal Gui­de to Da­ta Breach No­ti­fi­ca­ti­ons 2016


The World Law Group Global Guide to Data Breach Notifications, 2016 provides the critical information every organization needs to know when facing a data breach in one or more countries. The guide provides summaries of relevant law, data breach reporting requirements, contact information for relevant data protection authorities and more, currently for 60 countries worldwide, including a special chapter covering new developments in the European Union.

Hendrik Struik wrote the chapter on The Netherlands (page 117-120).

"Data breaches attract ever-increasing attention and concern in the field of data privacy. The Netherlands are in the forefront here, introducing the 2016 data breach law, Europe will follow in 2018. I find this World Law Group study helpful whenever personal data is exported to cloud providers or (sub)processors."
