GDPR matchup: APEC privacy framework and cross-border privacy rules

A new document examines laws from across the globe and matches them up against the EU General Data Protection Regulation, to help determine how much duplication of operational effort can be avoided as the move toward GDPR takes place.
It examines the principles of the APEC Privacy Framework with the principles expressed by the GDPR.
