MEP's report on new EU data protection rules gets critical reception

Jennifer Baker | Jan. 9, 2013
Europe's plans for data protection reform came a step closer on Tuesday with the publication of two reports from the European Parliament.

According to the European Commission, 72 percent of Internet users are worried that they give away too much personal data and feel they are not in complete control of their data. The Commission also projects that a single set of rules on data protection across the E.U. will remove unnecessary administrative requirements for companies saving businesses around ¬2.3 billion (US$3 billion) a year.

The European Parliament's LIBE Committee will discuss the draft reports on Jan. 10, and the Parliament as a whole will review them in March before a vote in April.
