Webinar Invitation: Russia's Impending Localization Law

Dear All,

On Thu, Aug 27 at 2PM BST / 5PM MSK / 9AM EST DataGuidance will be hosting a complimentary webinar: 'Russia's impending localization law - A global privacy trend?'

Speakers will include Julia Borden-Le Berre (Senior Regional Counsel Privacy & Data Protection, Mastercard), Steve Wright (Chief Privacy Officer, Unilever), my colleague Anastasia Zagorodnaya (Of Counsel, Dentons) and myself - Vladislav Arkhipov (Of Counsel, Dentons).

Anastasia and me shall focus on an overview of the legal requirements of the Russian "localization amendments" and the impact on foreign companies operating in Russia or targeting Russian citizens, along with insights related to "border-line" cases.

Our part will be based on the most recent experience of work on personal data matters with international companies of various industries in dynamic Russian environment.

Besides international companies with centralized data processing, "localization amendments" have special impact on companies operating online and targeting Russia without having corporate representation here. 

The registration link is here. We welcome everyone interested in the topic to join the webinar!
