Dramatic increase in importance of data privacy came with advance of information technology. Global domination of information exchange is forcing governments to establish international standards and regulatory mechanisms in order to protect data privacy. These efforts resulted in general principles of data privacy, which have been widely accepted, but also difficulty for diverse legislations. While Europe has highly developed and human rights oriented data privacy regulations, USA has less regulated and business enhancing oriented approach. Such discrepancy resulted in continious international discussions and agreements towards regulation‘s harmonization. Data privacy regulations in BiH has radical boost recently. The main push was protection of data privacy as condition for visa liberalization with EU countries, making BiH data privacy in full compliance with EU standards. However, when it comes to practical application, there‘s significant amount of data privacy interference and lack of awareness, while most serious breaches are conducted by public administration.
