From the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) in the United States to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union and the Privacy Act in Australia, the global range of privacy laws is broad and ever-evolving. Businesses operating within these jurisdictions must ensure that their data, especially when handled by suppliers, is managed with great care and in accordance with the law.
