European Commission proposes individual privacy in General Data Protection Regulation

Published: 16 Jan 2017

The European Commission (EC) has proposed new rules in its Regulation of Privacy and Electronic Communication, an update of ePrivacy directives last amended in 2009. The proposed rules will be debated by the European Parliament for implementation in line with the 25 May 2018 timeline for the General Data Protection Regulation. Because they are regulations instead of directives, the proposed rules would carry a higher legislative weight, with enforcement by national data protection agencies. This proposal is a crucial step in addressing the privacy component of individual data: the EC provides the legislative framework to guide enterprises and institutions in ensuring confidentiality of private data that is necessary to build trust in any connected environment.
