Mr. Billy Hawkes, Data Protection Commissioner, Ireland spoke on recent developments and proposed action in the area of data protection.
The Institute was delighted to hear Billy Hawkes comments on data protection as they are of particular benefit to our continuing research on Justice and Home Affairs Policy.
About the speech:
Billy Hawkes discussed the Lisbon Treaty, which if it comes into force will give enhanced status to data protection within the European Union. In particular, it will facilitate a more uniform application of data protection principles in the different areas of EU activity, including police, justice, foreign policy and security. The future EU data protection regime is likely to give added emphasis to the enforcement role of data protection authorities - particularly in areas such as data security. It is also likely to promote more effective protection of personal data when it moves outside EU borders. Are Irish State and private organisations ready for this more demanding data protection regime?
