Abstract

The price of privacy intrusion and security breaches is often due to the ubiquitous connectivity of networks. National entities as well as other governing bodies have passed laws and regulations to assist individuals in their quest to protect their information as it is being transmitted as well as received over these networks. An international perspective of information privacy and security laws and regulations can provide an insightful view concerning how each country differs as well as the important drivers for these differences. Policy makers can learn from the comparisons made in relation to similarity and/or differences of privacy and security laws as well. In this paper, we have selected different countries and regions around the world due to the growth of security and privacy threats that has grown over the past 10 years as well as their legislative practices.
