Ecuador Is Latest Country to Consider GDPR-like Privacy Law
Ecuador is considering a GDPR – like privacy law. A massive data breach in Ecuador has sparked a new push to pass data protection legislation that would mirror the European Union’s privacy regime.
The National Assembly is debating a bill that allows citizens to access, correct, eliminate and oppose the use of their personal data and sets up a new data protection authority to enforce the law and sanction bad actors. President Lenin Moreno sent the bill for debate shortly after the personal data of 20 million Ecuadorians was discovered on a server in Miami earlier this month.
