Press conference by Cecilia Malmström, Member of the EC, on the evaluation of the Data Retention Directive

Cecilia Malmström, Member of the EC in charge of Home Affairs, gave a press conference to present an evaluation report of the Data Retention Directive adopted by the EC, outlining the lessons learned since its adoption in 2006. The Directive established data retention as a response to urgent security challenges, following major terrorist attacks in Madrid in 2004 and in London in 2005. The report concludes that retained telecommunications data play an important role in the protection of the public against the harm caused by serious crime. They provide vital evidence in solving crimes and ensuring justice is served. However, transposition of the Directive has been uneven and the remaining differences between the legislations of Member States create difficulties for telecommunication service providers.
