ANSWER: D. The new law, known as Ley estatutaria No. 184/ 10 Senado, 046/10 Cámara, reflects a strong European influence. Unlike, however, other EU-style data protection laws that place obligations primarily on data controllers, this law would also directly regulate data processors. Under the legislation, a data processor would need to comply with a long list of requirements, including: informing the Superintendence of Industry and Commerce when there are violations of security rules or there are risks in the administration of personal data, developing an internal manual containing policies and procedures to ensure compliance with the law, with special emphasis on addressing data subjects' inquiries and claims and facilitating data subjects' access requests.

On October 7, 2011, the Constitutional Court of Colombia approved a landmark omnibus data protection law. Which of the following activities are now prohibited under the new law?

A. The processing of personal data without the data subject's prior consent;

B. The processing of children's personal data;

C. Forbidding access rights by data subjects to their own information.

D. All of the Above.
