Comment Neelie
[...] We will make it easier for personal data to cross borders, without compromising on the high and consistent protection Europeans expect. We will build in principles like privacy by design, with safeguards built into new ideas right from birth. Plus, different interpretations of existing rules currently mean 27 different ways of enforcing: so working across borders can be a costly headache. Our proposal does away with that fragmentation, with a single data protection Regulation for the whole EU. That could save businesses over €2 billion a year.
