Despite numerous data breaches, the French government has not announced new data security breach notification legislation. However, it is expected that such a legal framework will be enacted in order to implement the forthcoming amended ePrivacy Directive after its adoption by the European Parliament and the Council, writes Olivier Proust of Hunton & Williams LLP. In the meantime, Proust offers preventive measures that may help data controllers reduce the risk of a data security breach and its potential negative impact on a company, and says it may be advisable to notify affected individuals in the case of a breach after notifying the French data protection authority, the CNIL.
