  • Data breaches: Information on how to detect, report, and investigate data breaches, as well as the legal and practical steps to take in response to a breach.
  • International data transfers: An examination of the rules and mechanisms for transferring personal data outside the EU, including standard contractual clauses and binding corporate rules.
