Brazil: LGPD what you need to know

The Law No. 13.709 of 14 August 2018, General Personal Data Protection Law (as amended by Law No. 13.853 of 8 July 2019) ('LGPD') entered into force on 18 September 2020, although its enforcement provisions will not come into effect until 1 August 2021. The LGPD is a comprehensive data protection law which covers the activities of data controllers and processors and creates novel requirements on the processing of information of data subjects. It includes provisions on a variety of issues such as data protection officer appointments, Data Protection Impact Assessments, data transfers, and data breaches. It will be enforced by the Brazilian data protection authority ('ANPD') which, when established, is expected to provide important guidance and clarity on the provisions of the LGPD.

How OneTrust helps

The LGPD has many similarities to the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) ('GDPR'), granting certain data privacy rights to data subjects in Brazil and requiring organisations that process personal data to meet specific data protection obligations.

OneTrust's LGPD solutions are backed by AI, robotic automation and regulatory research, ensuring quick time to value, efficiency and unparalleled guidance as you build, adapt, and mature your LGPD program. OneTrust DataGuidance solutions are integrated directly into OneTrust products, enabling organisations to leverage OneTrust to drive compliance with hundreds of global privacy and security laws and frameworks. This approach provides the only solution that gives privacy departments the tools they need to efficiently monitor and manage the complex and changing world of privacy management.
