CEE Guide to data protection


When planning business operations in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), data protection law is as important as any other area of law. Most business projects will involve some processing of personal data, whether that of employees, customers or potential clients. In fact, personal data protection rules will potentially apply in any scenario where information relating to an individual is involved in any way.

We have prepared this guide to data protection in Central and Eastern Europe with the aim of providing an overview of the various national personal data protection frameworks that exist in CEE. The guide contains practical information on the scope, rules and enforcement consequences of the personal data protection frameworks in the following jurisdictions, listed alphabetically: Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, the Russian Federation, Slovakia and Ukraine.

To view the guide in full, please download the PDF.
