The Netherlands passes legislation on data breach

On January 1, 2016, the Dutch Bill on Notification of data leaks will take effect. The legislation introduces a general obligation for Dutch data controllers to notify the Data Protection Authority (College Bescherming Persoonsgegevens) as well as affected individuals of data security breaches. The legislation also provides for increased fines in case of violations of the Dutch Data Protection Act (Wet bescherming persoonsgegevens).
