EU privacy watchdog weighs in on data protection reform, shares concerns

Loek Essers | July 29, 2015
As European Union lawmakers in the Commission, Parliament and Council debate a new data protection law, the EU's data protection watchdog has chimed in, expressing some concerns and saying individuals' privacy rights should be at the core of the legislation.

He also looked at personal data breaches, which in his opinion should be reported to the relevant authority within 72 hours. That's in line with the Council's proposal, although it does give companies a get-out by saying the deadline should apply only "when feasible." The Commission wants a deadline of 24 hours, also only "when feasible," while Parliament proposed notifying the relevant authority "without undue delay" but without specifying a time frame.
