Hustinx Calls for Ambitious Approach to Framework
PRIVACY LAW—EUApril 30, 2010
Speaking at the European Privacy and Data Protection Commissioners' Conference in Prague yesterday, European Data Protection Supervisor Peter Hustinx called on the European Commission to be proactive on the legal framework for data protection. He said key elements of an effective framework would include integration of privacy by design into communications technologies, increased accountability for data controllers and stronger enforcement powers for data protection authorities. "It is essential that the commission comes up with proposals that take into account what is really needed and does not settle for less ambitious results," Hustinx said.
