The introduction of a European data breach notification requirement for the electronic communication sector introduced in the review of the ePrivacy Directive (Article 4) has been a very important development towards increasing the level of data security in Europe. The process is being driven by the European Commission, and ENISA is one of the stakeholders consulted on this, providing appropriate suggestions and recommendations. Notably, one of the focus of ENISA’s work on this is to involve and promote consensus among the different stakeholders participating in this process, namely the Article 29 and the Data Protection Authorities (DPAs), EDPS and the industry.
In the context of the above, ENISA is hosting a panel in the CPDP conference 2012; in this panel the various stakeholders expressing their views on the opportunities and challenges of Art4 implementation and to discuss how we could make it work. Specifically, the members of the panel are the following:
