Draft Data Protection Regulation summary of main features
The draft European Regulation on Data Protection is currently being debated in Europe.
This is the first major overhaul of the legislation since the 90s. Change is needed as the significant developments in data management, hosting and social networking have certainly surpassed the usability of the old law. There has also been consumer pressure to tighten data security, increase meaningful consent and curb the more privacy intrusive aspects of the internet.
