In virtually every major jurisdiction around the globe, lawmakers are updating privacy laws in order to better protect their citizens and businesses from increasingly intrusive data collection practices.

While this is a positive trend, it can make staying on top of the changes a distinct challenge for researchers, policymakers, lawyers, compliance officers, startups, and privacy consultants who require access to the best possible information.

But now there's help. The Data Collaboration Community has introduced the Privacy Law Navigator, a free application that provides users with a comprehensive global privacy law resource.

Advanced law discovery

The Privacy Law Navigator enables users to search laws by country or region (including US states) and augment the results with detailed filters, including:

  • Class

  • Scope

  • Sector

Instant access to global privacy laws

Each law is displayed as a card that includes a detailed taxonomy:
