Uruguay has been declared adequate by the European Union regarding Personal Data Protection. This recognition implies an approval of the legal security provided by Uruguay, which improves the flow of personal data between countries that have this distinction. It also sets a significant milestone that confirms the approval of regulations and national actions that guarantee the protection of this fundamental human right, which is customary to any technological and globalized society. Uruguay can now be seen as a country capable of assuming the challenge of taking care of the adequate controls that are required in the use and treatment of the personal data that has been provided. This is an opportunity for increasing businesses that involve or have as input the transfer of personal data, since control is offered as a guarantee that will facilitate interactions between countries.
