Free Tool: Privacy Law Navigator

Updated: Jun 23

Free tool now available in the Collaboration Hub joins a growing library of free datasets and tools available to privacy professionals

Data privacy laws are changing rapidly. In virtually every major jurisdiction around the globe, lawmakers are either reviewing and/or updating their privacy laws in order to protect their citizens and businesses from increasingly intrusive data collection practices.

While this is a positive thing, it can make staying on top of things a distinct challenges for people who require access to these laws and their updates.

But now there's help. The members of the Data Collaboration Community have joined forces to crowd-source a free tool that enables anyone to discover a summary of laws from around the globe along with a host of useful links.

Instant access to global privacy laws

The Privacy Law Navigator provides instant access to thousands of laws from around the globe that are organized into digestible "Law Cards" that contain essential details and useful links (see sample below). We're also in the process of adding data that details timing and content of changes to laws.

Advanced privacy filters

The Privacy Law Navigator can be filtered by location (region, country, continent) as well as more detailed options for:

  • Class

  • Scope

  • Sector

  • Changed [coming soon]

Individual Law Cards can also be bookmarked for future reference via the Node Zero platform.

Use cases

The Privacy Law Navigator is intended for use by a variety of people who can benefit from open and instant access to privacy laws from around the globe:
