Privacy and Data Security in Outsourcing

June 15, 2021

Access this practice note to learn about key privacy and data security issues in outsourcing. Outsourcing frequently results in a company’s data being stored outside of the company’s firewalls, often in systems managed by the outsourcing provider. Outsourcing can also result in movement of the company’s data to new and different countries, particularly when the supplier uses offshore or cloud computing resources. Outsourcing transactions that involve the transfer and processing of personal data pose significant privacy protection and data security legal risks.
