With all the time and energy spent focusing on the GDPR and the E.U. privacy regime, people may lose track of the privacy laws of other European countries, Miriam H. Wugmeister, a partner at Morrison & Foerster, said at a recent PLI program. Most nations in Europe outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) have their own privacy regimes, not all of which align neatly with the GDPR. In this first installment of a two-part series, we cover Wugmeister and Morrison & Foerster counsel Marian A. Waldmann’s analysis of the non-EEA privacy law landscape. The second installment will focus on Belarus, Russia, Switzerland, Turkey and Ukraine. See “GPEN Report Highlights Key Areas for Data Privacy Improvement
