A Global Roadmap to Personal Data Protection
Swaab is pleased to be the Australian chapter contributor in this latest MERITAS guide “A Global Roadmap to Personal Data Protection”.
“Not so long ago, “data protection” meant a locked filing cabinet and a good shredder. No longer. In a single generation, protecting data went from safeguarding documents to securing information of almost every kind, both tangible and in electronic form.

To make matters worse, a data breach today can cause far more serious consequences than in years past.
