Notice of Security Breaches

The European Commission has included proposed amendments to Directive 2002/58/EC in its latest review of the electronic communications regulatory framework.

Of particular interest to the UK, following the HMRC child benefit fiasco, is the proposal that breaches of security should be reported directly to the affected data subjects, together with recommended steps the subjects should take to protect themselves from the effects of the breach.

The proposed amending directive is available on the Commission’s website: here.
