Anastasia Petrova, ALRUD Senior Associate, was the lead writer in preparing the international alliance Ius Laboris article «The impact of the GDPR outside the EU» and contributed the part of the article relating to Russia.
Since its entry into force in May 2018, the GDPR has had a significant impact on data protection policy and enforcement beyond the EU. Although the GDPR didn’t have a direct effect on countries beyond EU, it set out detailed requirements for companies and organisations in these countries on collecting, storing and managing personal data . This review, by Ius Laboris lawyers in 24 jurisdictions, examines GDPR-related legal developments, positions of national regulators, enforcement practice, decisions and harmonisation trends outside the EU. The introductory note and details of Russian issues are presented by Anastasia Petrova, ALRUD Senior Associate.
