European Parliament Adopts Position on Data Breach Notification Requirement for Telecoms and ISPs

Posted on May 12, 2009 by Hunton & Williams LLP

On May 6, 2009, the proposed amendments to the e-Privacy Directive
received a second reading in the European Parliament. In addition to
other measures, it will include a definition of personal data breach and
will introduce a data breach notification requirement.

The review of the e-Privacy Directive forms part of a wider review of
telecoms legislation. The objective of that review is to improve network
security and integrity, to increase protection for user personal data and
to improve measures to prevent spam and cyber attacks. The scope of the
amended Directive will include the processing of personal data in
connection with the provision of publicly available electronic
communications services in public communications networks within the
European Community, including public communications networks supporting
data collection and identification devices.

For the first time in EU law the amendments introduce a definition of
personal data breach and a data breach notification requirement.
