EU gets serious about privacy

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

Does your organization do business in Europe? Sell any products or services to EU citizens?

If so, you’ll want to watch developments regarding a refresh to the EU privacy directive. There is a proposal to turn it into a uniform regulation (at least it will be the same in all 27 countries!) but also to make it quite onerous (100 pages of text?), to make compliance more onerous and to make incidents where privacy was compromised very expensive.

Official page with the proposal

Discussion of the changes

My take is that compliance will get quite expensive.
