I refer you to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_Insurance_Portability_and_Accountability_Act

: Title II of HIPAA defines policies, procedures and
: guidelines for maintaining the privacy and security of
: individually identifiable health information as well
: as outlining numerous offenses relating to health care
: and sets civil and criminal penalties for violations.
Ask your doctor's office if they've ever heard of HIPPA.

I think you need to qualify "data protection laws"; e.g.,
Ed Snowden would probably disagree with your statement as
it stands.

The IRS is extremely touchy regarding the handling of
taxpayer personal information--mishandle such and getting
fired may be the least of your problems; likewise, the SSA.
Most organizations have their own internal policies that
have the force of law for employees and contractors, and
those policies are often required by law; e.g., the
Sarbanees-Oxley Act, well-known to the IT employees of
large financial establishments.

 You'd better rearrange your beliefs, then.
 Because you certainly can't rearrange the universe."
