data protection bill draft

Post by Admin on Wed Aug 09, 2017 5:01 pm

The British government is planning to impose criminal sanctions on people who intentionally re-identify individuals from data that should have protected their identities.

The plans will be set out in the Blighty's Data Protection Bill – due to be introduced to Parliament next month – and could see an unlimited fine levied on people guilty of the new offence. The wider scope of the Bill promises to give individuals more control over how organisations use their personal information, including requests to delete posts or photos. This goes beyond the "right to be forgotten" rules that already exist in the case of search engines. Individuals will find it easier to require an organisation to disclose the personal data it holds about them without charge, if draft proposals go through.
