EU Breach Notification Guidance Issued

Under changes to EU law effective August 2013, all providers of publicly available electronic communications services in the EU have to inform national regulators within 24 hours of detecting a personal data breach.

The EU Working Party on Data Protection said it would be "good practice" for all organisations to follow the March 2014 published guidance on breach notification.
