Additional comments regarding the legal situation for RegTech-services or what RegTech’s must be aware of in this business area

Although in Argentina there are no specific regulations applicable to the activities of RegTech companies, it is important to refer to certain provisions contained in the Data Protection Law 25,326, which imposes data controllers to adopt adequate security measures to avoid unauthorised access to data subjects’ personal data. This is reinforced by Resolution 47/2018 issued by the Agencia de Acceso a la Información Pública (entity in charge of enforcing Data Protection Lay 25,326) which contains guidelines and best practices in the adoption of security measures following the European standards of GDPR. In this context in which data protection authorities impose strict obligations on the way data controllers collect, store and process personal data from data subjects, RegTech companies play an active role offering secure and innovative solutions which can adequately meet such legal standards.
