New EU data privacy laws proposed

Thought some of you might be interested in this: http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-pro...ite/index.html

They're proposing a rewrite of the 1995 data privacy directive. Seems quite sweeping, too - proposed fines for companies failing to take proper measures (such as notifying customers within 24 hours of a breach) can reach up to 2% of revenues (not even profit!). Fun stuff.

Oh, I consult in the area of security and privacy, if any CIOs out there are interested.

Re: New EU data privacy laws proposed

If the EU do actually adopt it, will Switzerland follow?

I don't think that anyone serious about privacy should be on this forum.
