Similar to the data protection acts of other nations, the LGPD applies to any business or organization that processes personal data belonging to Brazilian citizens — regardless of where that business or organization itself is located. This means that any organization, including those outside of Brazil, with customers located in Brazil must ensure that their data infrastructure maintains LGPD compliance. Therefore, we see the Brazilian data protection law as a benchmark framework for data privacy compliance across the South America continent.
The LGPD requires that data breaches are reported to national authorities
If an organization is found to be non-compliant with the LGPD legislation, it will receive penalties of up to 2 percent of Brazil-sourced revenue for the prior fiscal year. Fines are limited to a maximum of 50 million reals (approximately $9 million USD). Additionally, organizations are obligated to report any data security incidents or breaches to Brazilian national authorities. Watch the video to see how Ground Labs can help you comply with LGPD.
