The dawn of the information age has increased the importance of personal data protection to the extent that governments and international organizations around the world have been forced to adopt legislation and multilateral instruments aimed at protecting the privacy of individuals.;At the same time, business and governmental interests have tried to restrict the scope of privacy legislation, recognising its potential impact on the interests of global commerce. This work includes the full English text of all the international regulations in the field of data protection and of national legislation from over 30 jurisdictions, together with a concise introduction and commentary. The rapid expansion of international data exchange, together with technological advances in the ways in which information can be gathered, stored and shared, makes up-to-date knowledge of the applicable legislation essential for all those involved in data protection and exchange. ""The Global Encyclopedia of Data Protection Regulation"" is published in looseleaf format and updated regularly to ensure its continuing relevance.;It will be an essential reference work for computer law practitioners, data protection officials, lawyers, business managers and researchers dealing with transborder data flows in a global information society, enabling them to effectively deal with one of the most rapidly changing areas of law and regulation.;Jan Holvast is an independent consultant in the field of data protection. He acts as consultant to several Dutch ministries, local authorities and private companies. Wayne Madsen is a Senior Fellow of the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) in Washington, DC. He has over 20 years' experience in information security and data protection. Paul Roth is Associate Professor of Law in the Faculty of Law at the University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand. He specialises in information law and employment law.
