OneTrust DataGuidance and Baptista Luz Advogados have produced an updated guide to assist organizations in understanding and comparing the latest developments and changes in the Brazilian legislation. The Report has been updated to take into account the latest developments and the entry into force of the LGPD
The LGPD, which entered into force on September 18, 2020, includes provisions resembling the GDPR, such as the appointment of data protection officers, conduction of Data Protection Impact Assessments as well as similar bases for lawful processing. However, differences between the GDPR and the LGPD make compliance with the two laws a difficult challenge for companies. The Report seeks to assist organizations with these challenges and includes references to all the latest LGPD amendments.
