The value proposition of Dutch and European data protection legislation

The Dutch Data Center Assosiation (DDA) and ICT Recht combined forces and published a factsheet on the current and future Dutch and European data protection legislation.

The emphasis of the English written factsheet is to give insight to international businesses, who store or distribute¬†privacy-sensitive data in the Netherlands, on the changes in legislation going into affect from May 25th 2018. The Dutch Data Center Association states that ”the motivation for creating the factsheet is the fact that data is rapidly becoming one of the most valuable assests of businesses.”

With the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) legislation that is going to replace the current Wet Bescherming Persoonsgegevens (WBP) starting from May 25th, 2018, the DDA wants to inform all stakeholders on the changes and potential impacts of the changes.
