Dutch data protection authority publishes Policy Rules on breach notification duty

Dutch data protection

An amendment has been made to the Dutch Data Protection Act, which requires all data processors to notify Cbp of any serious data breaches beginning January 1, 2016. Failure to notify Cbp could result in fines of 10 percent of a data processor’s revenue, capped at €810,000.

This amendment comes after a series of complaints by citizens of their electronic equipment, most specifically their laptops being stolen, and the data being used for criminal purposes. Notifying the authorities at an earlier time would make it easier for them to recover the equipment before the data is used for illegal purposes.

However, it’s always better to feel safe than sorry. There’s no guarantee whether you or the authorities would be able to recover your data on time. So before your data is used against you, we recommend that you protect it with a powerful encryption software, Folder Lock.

Folder Lock lets you password-protect files, folders and drives; encrypt your important files on-the-fly; backup them in real-time; protect portable drives; shred files & drives and clean history. Folder Lock is the most downloaded file-security application with more than 25 million users.

The newest version of Folder Lock, i.e. Folder Lock 7.5.6, has been released which, the company boasts, is the most stable version of Folder Lock yet. All the bugs have been removed from Folder Lock 7.5.6, and it is fully compatible with Windows 10 Operating System too. So keep your data secure with Folder Lock 7.5.6!
