Notes from the IAPP

11.01.2010
As most of you know, the European Data Protection Directive will undergo a substantial review in 2011. Many anticipate it will result in new enforcement powers for data protection authorities and more rights for individuals. Others predict that it may bring some relief for organizations from administrative compliance burdens and result in a more harmonized approach across the continent. Will the companies be required to appoint data protection officers and what their role will be? Whatever the outcome, data privacy and data protection will be top of mind across Europe for the next 14 months and beyond, as the legislative changes start to shape up in each country, too. Its ripples will certainly be felt across borders. The world is watching.
