Germany and The Netherlands, leaders in data protection in Europe

The Netherlands leads with reporting requirements on data leaks

Germany and The Netherlands are the leaders in data protection in Europe. It means they are the front-runners in terms of reporting requirements on data leaks, Privacy Impact Assessments (an instrument for determining privacy risks of data processing in advance – PIA), the societal debate and information campaigns. The budgets, staffing levels and powers of the supervisory authority (the Personal Data Authority) to impose fines are in line with European norms. The supervisory authority is a familiar institution among Dutch people. If you would like further information on Data Protection in Spain or throughout Europe, we can help. Leiden University, the oldest in The Netherlands, investigated 8 European countries on these topics.
