What is the problem? Europeans want to be informed on data security breaches
According to surveys, 84% of Europeans would wish to be informed if their personal data was lost, stolen or altered. That is one reason why data security breaches are high on the EU agenda.
Why is EU action required? EU can provide rules
The current review of the EU data protection framework will include a possible extension of the obligation to notify data security breaches, which would be an important move towards improving data security. For legislative aspects, see more under Action 12.
What will the Commission do?
Review the EU data protection regulatory framework (this action is a component of action 12).
