Privacy Insights 2023

Privacy and data protection legislation continues to evolve across the world. Recent developments, like the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework, China PIPL, and the shifting landscape of U.S. privacy laws has organisations of all sizes struggling with staffing, process, and technology to manage their global privacy and data protection programmes. 

BDO publishes an annual Privacy Insights Whitepaper, Global Privacy Resources Guide, and PrivacyWatch® as three complementary resources that allow organisations to stay abreast of changing regulations and laws.  

While most organisations recognise the importance of data privacy compliance, they struggle with operationalising the privacy programme to effectively address the global patchwork of privacy obligations. Compounded by the increase in security risk due to cyber-attacks and ransomware, it is more important than ever for organisations to enhance and maintain their data protection and privacy compliance programmes. BDO’s DPO-as-a-Service and Data Protection Managed Services (DPMS) offer right-sized solutions to address global data protection compliance. 

Privacy professionals must maintain up-to-date knowledge of their organisation’s obligations, along with a network of trained peers, to effectively manage privacy compliance. BDO’s Data Protection Academy enables professionals to address their organisation’s privacy challenges. As an official training partner of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), the Academy’s trainers provide education regarding privacy principles and compliance for data protection professionals.

This whitepaper focuses on data privacy regulatory insights around the globe and how BDO helps our clients to address the complex and dynamic data protection landscape.
