Macarena Gatica (Chile), Tomás Schoeller Paiva (Brasil) and Diego Fernández (Argentina) discuss the status of the data protection regime in their respective countries. The main focus will be to know to what extent data protection laws in those Latin American countries can be comparable to the one in the EU and if they could be considered to offer an adequate level of protection of personal data. The speakers will have around 15 minutes for a presentation. Then there will be questions. The event is hosted by Andrea Lucia Tapia-Hoffmann.
