Data Breach Notification Coming to the Europe

Deputy Data Protection Supervisor Joaquin Bayo Delgado gave the keynote presentation at the NAID-Europe/PRISM Conference last week. He forecasted that it is a matter of time before the EU adopts legislation that will require organizations to notify citizens when their personal information had been subject to a data breach. It was this type of legislation, first adopted in California, having now spread across the country and many other developed nations, that has been a major in heightened information protection practices over the last 5 years.
