Privacy Laws & Business United Kingdom and International Reports are business-to-business data protection publications that provide you with news and compliance advice on the most pressing privacy issues through corporate case studies and legal analysis. Since 1987 the Reports have become a valued, comprehensive information source for privacy and data protection managers and lawyers in more than 50 countries.

Privacy incidents can leave organisations in breach of the law, but just as importantly, bad publicity can seriously damage your organisation’s brand and inevitably its bottom line. Privacy and data protection is now a business priority. Consumers are increasingly aware of their rights and willing to exercise them against organisations that fail to protect their information.

We concentrate on providing practical compliance-orientated advice, which will help you in your day-to-day work.
