The new Brazilian Data Protection bill currently in discussion provides a whole new approach to data protection for the country. It also follows the current trend of several countries, the European Union included, by adopting a data breach notification regime. The text would make companies liable without the need to prove omission or negligence. Currently they are only liable to the extent of damages resulting from the misuse of information leaked or stolen due to a data security breach.

The European Data Protection Supervisor has recently issued an opinion on the review of the EU legal framework for data protection (Directive 95/46/EC). It expresses concerns regarding the increasing difficulties for individuals to protect the privacy of their personal data, and calls for strengthening individuals’ rights over them. This can be done, the EDPS argues, by making security breach notifications mandatory for all relevant sectors, increasing transparency of processing for data subjects, and introducing new rights, such as the “right to be forgotten” and the “right to data portability”.
