Global Solution for Cross-Border Data Transfers


Cross border transfers are becoming more difficult and costly from a business perspective as more countries

adopt privacy laws that regulate and limit cross-border transfers of personal information, including transfers to

headquarters, affiliates, branch offices or subsidiaries. Typically these laws either explicitly prohibit transfers to

other countries unless certain conditions are met or impose regulatory obligations on the organizations transferring the personal information. Many of these laws are enacted in response to growing public concern about the potential and actual misuse of personal information in an increasingly networked economy.
