Italian police investigate telecom data retention

Wednesday 6 March 2013 | 15:57 CET | News
The Italian Financial Police have launched an investigation into compliance with the regulations on retention of telephone and computer traffic data. The Rome branch of the Financial Police, in collaboration with the Guarantor for the protection of personal data, is questioning 11 telephony companies and ISPs as part of the investigation. The goal of the operation is to verify whether the service providers comply with the rules on privacy. Nine cases were registered over alleged administrative violations of the Privacy Code relating to the retention of traffic data beyond the prescribed limits, the non-adoption of minimum safety measures, and the failure to adopt some of the additional protective measures prescribed by the Guarantor, such as the use of biometric recognition technologies to control data access and data encryption.
