A LGPD (General Law for the Protection of Personal Data), had been sanctioned even in the government Michel Temer, in 2018, and entered into force in Brazil in September last year. However, only from this Sunday, 1, that the sanctions for companies that do not adequately protect their customers’ data will begin to apply.
The regulation provides for warnings, blocks and daily fines that can reach 2% of net sales, with a ceiling of up to 50 million reais.
As long as it does not comply with the law, the company may have the database blocked for up to six months, in an action that will certainly impede its operation.
LGPD is a standards-aware device for handling user data stored by companies. In addition to bringing rules on how they must be managed, the law targets the registration and handling of information in any medium, whether digital or not.
