Survey Calls for Breach Notification Requirements
DATA PROTECTION—IRELANDMarch 26, 2010
Almost half of Irish Computer Society members taking part in a recent survey said they were not confident they would be contacted should their personal information be compromised in a data breach, SiliconRepublic.com reports. Unveiled at the Annual Data Protection Conference yesterday, the March 2010 survey also found that 81 percent of respondents said legislation should be enacted requiring organisations to notify the Data Protection Commission after a breach. Customers should be notified as well, 80 percent of respondents said. "Companies need to realize the importance of data protection in their companies and give it the time and training it deserves," said the Irish Computer Society's CEO.
