Reding unveils new EU data Protection Rules

After much internal strife, the European Commission published today (25 January) a broad legislative package aimed at safeguarding personal data across the EU. The proposal, if approved, is expected to strengthen citizens’ rights and could have a far-reaching impact on the way online data are collected and processed. Viviane Reding, the justice and fundamental rights commissioner, had to struggle to have her proposals accepted by other commissioners, but eventually managed to pass a set of new rules that will significantly increase the rights of citizens - if member states and the Parliament do not water them down.
