How can data protection practitioners future‐proof their privacy policies, particularly with uncertainty around the timescale and content of forthcoming data protection reform in Europe? Does delay offer an opportunity: will it mean more time for compliance and will it enable intergovernmental discussions to alter long-term arrangements, such as the EU‐US ‘Safe Harbor’ Scheme that permits registered US companies to export personal data from the EU to the US? In practice, what are the likely business implications of draft EU directive requirements? With the European Commission producing strategies for cloud computing and cyber security, how well are the implications of new and forthcoming technologies and threats being recognised and addressed by the draft data protection regulation? How are businesses benefiting from privacy by design and impact assessments to deliver greater efficiency, reduce costs and allay regulatory action?
