Brazil Signs Data Protection Bill Into Law

Brazilian president Michel Temer signed a data protection bill into law this week which will be applicable to all organizations, public or private, that collect and process data in the country.

Scheduled to be enforced within 18 months, the new rules will protect the data of individuals and businesses online and prevent the commercial use of information such as names, telephone numbers and addresses without consent of the subject.

Those who fail to comply will be handed penalties that can range from 2% of company earnings up to 50 million reais.
