Boston, MA -- The second of Mercator' s reports on data protection and privacy concentrates on the practical challenges of compliance with European privacy law, highlighting the significant differences between U.S. practice and European expectations and requirements. Translating the multiple data protection “directives” released by the European Union into law within different national legislatures is a bumpy and frequently inconsistent process.
During this time, it has become abundantly clear that the European view of personal privacy differs substantially from the prevailing view in the United States. Mercator Advisory Group' s new report EU Data Protection and Privacy: Conflicts Simmer and Risks Grow discusses the challenges facing all firms, including financial firms, with safeguarding consumer data and managing constantly-shifting compliance risks.
“In the European Union, unfettered consumer data collection is very much illegal, as exemplified by the recent generalized prohibition on the placement of cookies on individuals' PCs without explicit prior permission,” states Patricia McGinnis, director in Mercator Advisory Group' s Banking Group. “Those whose businesses depend on monetizing consumer data, and those who have invested in or financed such businesses, should proceed with extreme caution when making assumptions about future revenue streams. Many of the legal issues discussed in this report remain unresolved as new European legislation is tested in the courts.”
