Data privacy and security are becoming more important in day-to-day business, and the European Union’s approach to consumer privacy rights has expanded its reach across the globe. Jamaica’s Data Protection Act of 2020 gave businesses a two-year period for implementation, but, as 2022 approaches, businesses must ensure their compliance before this deadline.

The act contains discreet requirements for the handling of personal data of individuals, as well as specific obligations for businesses in the event of a data breach.

This webinar will provide an overview of the Data Protection Act and practical advice on what steps your business can take today to comply. Carlton Fields Shareholders Christina Gagnier and Kristin Gore will share their experience working on data privacy and security compliance and implementation with their clients in Jamaica and the Caribbean.
