About us

Privacy Laws & Business is a UK-based, independent, international privacy laws information service. 

Privacy Laws & Business was founded in 1987 by Stewart Dresner when he published the world’s first regular international privacy report. We were the first in the field to provide compliance advice to both public and private sector clients.

Since then we have been providing trustworthy practical information on over 150 countries and a range of first class services in this subject. We have maintained our leading position through keeping contact with the privacy regulators and a network of specialist contacts and resources worldwide. We also provide links to Data Protection Authorities around the world.

You need the tools to get privacy right. Many of the world's top law firms, companies and data protection regulators rely on our monthly International and UK Reports, attend our events and commend our unrivalled expertise.

We have maintained our independent stance: our sponsors do not have automatic speaking rights at our events.

We show why and how a positive response to the issues underlying privacy laws provides a competitive advantage, a way of building and sustaining customer trust, and also a driver of your business strategy.

Privacy Laws & Business is totally focused on how you can manage your data within the law. We continue to innovate and look for emerging topics.
