General Data Protection Regulation liability in Brazil

Europe’s data protection landscape will dramatically and permanently change when the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and its exorbitant fines for mishandling the data of European citizens anywhere in the world, goes into effect. The GDPR’s reach potentially impacts every company in Brazil – including the licensees, franchisees, suppliers, and partners of American, Asian, and European companies doing business in Brazil.
