The conference provided insight into the motivations prompting the enactment of Russia’s data localization law – which requires the personal data of Russian citizens to be stored within the territory of the Russian Federation (see our recent webinar on the law) – and some of the regulator’s compliance expectations.  The conference was well-attended by representatives of Russian and international companies, various foreign data protection authorities, and Roskomnadzor officials.  The high turnout was expected, as many stakeholders have been anticipating the conference due to the lack of clarity to date on the obligations under the law and its effective date.
