IBERO-AMERICAN DATA PROTECTION STANDARDS AIM TO BUILD TRUST IN THE REGION

The Argentinian Data Protection Authority has approved Data Protection Standards for Ibero-American States.  The Standards  seek  to  address  the  lack  of harmonization  in  Ibero-American  states  regarding  data  protection  by  issuing  a  series  of  principles  and common rights to serve as a framework for the adoption and development of legislation in the region. The  Standards  provide  definitions  of   anonymization,  consent,  personal  data, sensitive  personal  data,  data  controller,  data  processor, and  data  processing.  They  also  call  for mandatory  data  breach  notification  requirements,  subject  to  certain  exemptions,  and  set  out  the conditions  for  such  notification.  In  addition,  the  Standards  set  out  criteria  for  obtaining  consent, require  controllers  to  implement  adequate  security  measures,  recognize  data  subjects’   right  to  data portability,  and  establish  general  rules  for  international  data  transfers.
