The European Commission has proposed a comprehensive reform of the EU’s 1995 data protection rules to strengthen online privacy rights and boost Europe’s digital economy.
A video interview on EU data protection reform with Jan Philipp Albrecht, the European Parliament rapporteur on the General Data Protection Regulation, posted by EU policy broadcaster viEUws, is available here.
Albrecht, of Germany and the Greens/European Free Alliance, said he hopes the reform will achieve a much needed harmonisation of the different data protection interpretations, laws and enforcement regimes in Europe.
The interview with Albrecht was also featured in a viEUws video brief on the digital agenda along with comments from Troels Oerting, head of the European Cybercrime Centre. Oerting speaks about a forthcoming cybersecurity strategy that will be proposed in the coming months by the European Commission, encompassing internet defence, online crime, theft, and fraud.
The strategy, in part, will be managed by the recently opened European Cybercrime Centre. The video interview is available here.
