MacRoberts Partner, Valerie Surgenor, within her role as member of the Consumer Privacy and Data Analytics Sub-Committee of the Cyber Space Sub-Committee of the American Bar Society has contributed to an initiative focussed on the creation of a new global privacy checklist.

The checklist tool provides a user-friendly guide regarding data collection and storage requirements for businesses across the US, Canada, the European Union and Australia. The checklist also provides an overview of the requirements for the specialist collection relating to data in the areas of finance, health, children and biometrics.

In the video below, Valerie and fellow contributor John Isaza discuss their work and the checklist in further detail.
