Issues with new EU Directive on Data Retention. The IIA has considered the recent EU Data Retention Directive. There are quite a number of issues relating to internet data and how it is stored and processed. ISPs may be particularly affected if the proposed directive becomes law. some of the issues raised include :
– the technical feasibility of the directive
– the implications for ISPs and Telcos
– the personal privacy issues
– the actual effectiveness of data retention as a terrorism prevention tool
The IIA intends to hold an event in the near future to discuss this important development. If you are interested in getting involved in presenting or discussing your viewpoint at this event please contact us.
