How to prepare your company for Brazil’s new Data Protection Law

Mattos Filho, Veiga Filho, Marrey Jr e Quiroga Advogados


The Brazilian Data Protection Law – which regulates the use of personal data by legal entities in Brazil by establishing detailed rules for the collection, use, processing and storage of personal data – was enacted in August 2018. The law will significantly change the data protection system in Brazil, is in line with the EU General Data Protection Regulation and will affect all economic sectors, including:

  • relationships between customers and suppliers of goods and services;
  • relationships between employees and employers; and
  • other relationships in which personal data is collected, in both the digital and physical environments.

The obligations established by the law will become effective on 15 February 2020.

This webinar will cover:

  • the scope of the law’s applicability;
  • extraterritorial effects;
  • personal and sensitive data under the law;
  • the legal basis for data processing;
  • international data transfer;
  • data subject rights;
  • data breach notification requirements; and
  • penalties.
