Brazil’s Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados (LGPD), which translates to General Data Protection Law, went into effect in February 2020. The law unifies the many disparate attempts of the Brazilian government to protect personal data that exists both on and offline.
Similar to the recently-passed 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 organizations with customers located in Brazil must ensure that their data infrastructure maintains LGPD compliance.
If an organization is found to be non-compliant with the LGPD legislation, it will receive penalties of up to 2 percent of 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.
