Data protection compliance in the CIS and neighboring countries: Top 10 Frequently Asked Questions

Data protection compliance in the CIS and neighboring countries: Top 10 Frequently Asked Questions

11 November 2020

During recent years, we have been accumulating our experience of advising clients on data protection issues, that companies face when doing their business in Russia. Many of our clients do their business in other CIS countries as well and usually face quite similar issues there. However, the level of regulation and, more importantly, enforcement, in different jurisdictions of the post-Soviet Union territory, varies significantly. We decided to create an easy-to-read brochure shedding the light on the most frequently asked questions, in the area of data protection.

To do so, ALRUD and leading law firms in the region have prepared their responses to the same questions, covering the most sensitive issues in terms of data protection regulation, so you can easily see the differences and similarities. Specifically, we have started from the notion of personal data, and applicability of local data protection laws, and continued with the specific requirements relating to data localization, direct marketing practices, use of cookies, data disclosures to the third parties and other issues.

The brochure was prepared by ALRUD Law Firm (Russia) in cooperation with 4 law firms from the region: Aequitas Law Firm (Kazakhstan), Revera (Belarus), BLC Law Office (Georgia), and Vasil Kisil & Partners (Ukraine).

With thanks to the following firms partnering with ALRUD Law Firm:
