The Register on whether the EU’s new #GDPR is so much a shield as a sieve, since their are a number of opportunities for national parliaments to weaken it. The IT industry has already considered if Judges & Courts can/should be considered to be an insider attack, now we can add national legislatures; there is little doubt that under the current government, any tuning of the GDPR will be pro-business, pro-spy and anti-privacy, although they are currently busy legalising Plod’s ability to break the Misuse of Computers Act. I also reckon they need something that they don’t care about to use up Parliamentary time after the referendum.
