New Report Highlights Consumer Goals for EU Privacy Law

BEUC, The European Consumer Organization, has published "My Personal Data", outlining key requirements for negotiations in Europe on the General Data Protection Regulations. BEUC underscored "the urgent need to put consumers back in control over the way their personal data is processed online." The BEUC report emphasized strong data protection principles, enhanced rights for individuals, and a comprehensive enforcement scheme. EU negotiations involve a "trilogue" of the European Parliament, the Council, and the Commission, with the EU Data Supervisor also playing an active role. In the U.S., EPIC supports the Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights and organized a coalition of consumer privacy groups to urge President Obama to enact the privacy framework into law.
