Launch issue

    Welcome to the inaugural print issue of Global Data Review, which marks the full launch of a publication that has been in the works since early 2018.

    The magazine is intended to serve as an important quarterly complement to our daily online news service.

    I’m delighted to present the centrepiece of the magazine: a 40 Under 40 feature that profiles the individuals around the world who are leading the new generation of data lawyers.

    Besides that, we have in-depth coverage of Germany’s devolved privacy enforcement regime, and what the new GDPR enforcement framework across the EU could learn from it; and a feature tracing the evolution of Canada’s PIPEDA enforcement regime, and the question of whether it should be given some real teeth. And last, but certainly not least, an overview of Brazil’s new omnibus data protection legislation authored by Mattos Filho lawyers Fabio Ferreira Kujawski and Maíra Schweling Scala.

    The GDR team and I very much hope that you enjoy this first issue, and look forward to producing many more.
