Last Wednesday, the European Commission unveiled the changes to its data privacy laws. If the changes are adopted, companies will deal with a single, national data-protection authority in the EU country in which they have their main base.

Companies that break the rules would face fines from strengthened national regulators. The fine could be as much as 2% of annual global revenue.
