Data protection approaches vary globally, requiring flexibility when processing personal information
Companies that operate globally and capture and work with personal information must be aware of the varying levels of protection that such data receive in jurisdictions around the world. Those varying protections often extend even to when, how and to whom personal information can be transferred. The increasing focus on such information also means that the rules likely will evolve further at different paces in those disparate jurisdictions.
Accordingly, a flexible approach to collecting and managing that information will be more and more critical to success in the global market.
