Data protection

The BBC is reporting that the Information Commissioner in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany, is calling for tougher privacy laws to tackle the illegal sale of personal data, some of which includes bank account details and phone numbers. And this in a country that already has the toughest privacy laws in Europe. Commissioner Thilo Weichert already has a track record of taking on the big boys – as SWIFT found out – so expect to see real results in this case.
