Enisa call for 'privacy by design' in network standards

Thursday 15 January 2015 | 15:18 CET | News
The EU's networks security agency, Enisa has published a report on 'Privacy by Design' in electronic communications networks. The report aims to address the gap between policy and practice, Enisa said. Existing laws and regulations are not enough to ensure that networks meet the norms for privacy and data protection. New standards need to be developed with a focus on privacy, and older standards should be phased out, the agency recommends. The EU is currently working on a revision to the data protection directive and aims to reach an agreement on the legislation this year.
