On the second episode of our Inside Privacy Audiocast, we are aiming our looking glass at Russia, and are joined for our discussion by Partner Maria Ostashenko and Senior Associate Anastasia Petrova of the Data Protection and Cybersecurity practice at the Alrud law firm in Moscow.

The pair discuss Russia’s data protection framework, zooming in on the interplay between its data localization and cross-border data transfer regulations, and consider the enforcement practices of Russia’s data protection authority, Roskomnadzor.

This Audiocast will especially be of interest to companies with operations in, or directing services into Russia.
