A guide to data protection in Central and Eastern Europe


The importance of data protection law to investors in Central and Eastern Europe

When planning business operations in Central and Eastern Europe ("CEE"), data protection law is an important consideration. Most business projects will involve some processing of personal data, whether that of employees, customers or potential clients. In fact, personal data protection rules will potentially apply in any scenario where information relating to an inpidual is involved in any way. Our CEE Data Protection Group, which consists of lawyers from across CEE who specialise in data protection, has prepared a guide to data protection in CEE, with the aim of providing an overview of the various national personal data protection frameworks that exist in CEE.

Overview of the guide

The guide contains practical information on the scope, rules and enforcement consequences of the personal data protection framework in the following jurisdictions: Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania and the Russian Federation. By drawing on the extensive knowledge and experience of our team, we have bought together a list of questions and answers to help you plan, implement and evaluate your personal data protection policies.
