Squire Patton Boggs’ data privacy and cybersecurity practice group co-chair Rosa Barcelo.

It’s not just oceans separating the European Union and the U.S. Some would say that the U.S. is lagging behind the EU because it doesn’t have a national data privacy law while the EU has the broad General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
