In this final instalment of an ongoing series on the issues that affect compliance in an ever more complex world Teresa Troester-Falklooks at how organisations can demonstrate compliance using an accountability approach.
Do we need to protect the privacy of the deceased? Let’s look at the two kingpins of privacy regulation mentioned earlier – HIPAA and GDPR.

The exit of the United Kingdom from the EU has caused turmoil in world markets and has far reaching consequences for those companies in the European Union doing business with the country – and vice versa. There has also been some uncertainty about how the authorities based in London will be treating data security and privacy issues.

However, will this necessarily be the case in the future? Will global companies with a British connection (including those in Asia) be forced to revisit how they treat data security and privacy issues when dealing with the United Kingdom – and will British companies move away from the rules that have been set in place by Brussels?
