Latin America: It's for Privacy Lovers! (José Bermúdez)
Show Notes

On this episode of Serious Privacy, Paul Breitbarth of Catawiki and Dr. K Royal of Outschool are headed to South America to see what is happening in privacy. With one cohost based in the United States and the other in Europe, it is no surprise that the focus of the Serious Privacy conversations is often the transatlantic relationship. Of course, data protection goes beyond the European Union and the United States, many Latin American countries have had national data protection laws for quite a long time. 

So José Alejandro Bermúdez joined the show to share a wealth of knowledge on privacy laws, especially an update on Colombia. José was the inaugural data protection commissioner in Columbia and a longtime data protection advocate. José was a member of the governmental commission appointed to draft the Columbian data protection and its secondary regulations, and a member of the Colombian OECD accession mission for privacy in the digital economy. He is currently the LATAM advisor for the Centre for Information Policy Leadership - so he knows a thing or two about privacy in Latin America.
