  • 1. Ukraine Tightens Data Protection with New Law (Bristol, UK) - Ukraine recently announced the adoption of new data protection regulations. This new legislation introduces a number of landmark changes in the Ukrainian data protection legal framework including ceasing the functions of the Ukrainian Data Protection Authority and making the Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights (the Ombudsman) the new privacy regulator, reports Nair & Co.’s International Services Team. Clarification and new points are provided in the Ukrainian legislation. It also tightens liability for privacy non-compliance offences and amends procedures related to privacy compliance. The new regulations outline specific points for data controllers, some are noted here:  When handling “personal data” – subjects should be notified of the processing of their data within 30 working days.  When processing “high risk data” – the Ombudsman should be notified when the data may expose the data subjects to rights and freedoms risks.  Warnings of non-compliance may be issued by the Ombudsman when there is a failure to notify the processing of “high risk data.”  Audits of monitoring and compliance may be performed by the Ombudsman both on a scheduled and random basis. Nair & Co. advises both domestic and foreign companies operating in Ukraine to become familiar with these new data regulations and implement the pertinent policies and procedures to remain in compliance.
