Under the law as it stands
In April 2011 a high-profile security breach at a technology company compromised the accounts of 77 million customers: names, email and postal addresses, date of birth, passwords and login information, purchase history and credit card information.
It took nearly a week before the company acknowledged the data breach and informed the customers affected.
Your rights in these circumstances need to be strengthened.
The Commission proposals provide that customers be informed as soon as possible if their private data has been seriously compromised!
