In the present era, cybercrime and other similar offenses including identity theft, data breach, etc, have increased the concern towards data security over the last decade. On one side, we cannot avoid our everyday life without data transferring transactions and on the other side, the data transferring transactions are becoming riskier and riskier. Sensing the urge of the hour, many States globally have come up with their Data Protection Laws. However, among all such regulations, the General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union has had a large impact on the world. In order to determine how effective and similar the General Data Protection Regulations are, the author has reviewed the legislation and made a few other regulations, such as the Personal Data Protection Act, 2012 of Singapore, a point of comparison. The provisions of the compliance requirements that are the same and different in each of these rules have also been considered by the author. The corporate entities' perspective has been used to evaluate compliance requirements. Since the regime is still in its infancy at the moment, the author has also provided a brief introduction to the data protection laws already in place in India and any potential future developments. With the aim of comparing and developing a better understanding of the regulations of the respective three countries, the author derives an analysis in this article.
