As personal data markets expand, regulation is an increasingly important issue for business, governments and consumers. Information privacy protection varies between different jurisdictions at all levels. As trade between jurisdictions increases, pressure to standardize regulation also increases. This trend is already apparent with the possibility of a de facto international standard. This paper looks at the future of information privacy protection and how a number of organizations are adapting to the new regulatory climate.
