Online Streaming “Key Developments in the Personal Data Protection: Legislative and Judicial Trends. Guidelines From Members of Roskomnadzor Working Group”

The digitalization trend has been leading to changed approaches exercised by the regulator and courts, increasing the liability for violation of laws and providing new challenges for businesses. The year 2020 will be remembered for intense legislative efforts, precedent-setting legal proceedings and unexpected initiatives. What changes have been made to important draft laws on personal data? How should one structure their operations considering the initial localization practices? How did the pandemic affect the approaches exercised by the regulator? How can one protect themselves taking into account the gaps in regulation of personal data processing on the Internet?
