The European Union has introduced new regulations which force Internet service providers and telecommunication companies serving European subscribers to confess any security or information breach within 24 hours of it happening. The EU announced that any telecom operator or ISP operating in the member state who suffers from a data breach involving loss of personal information or its theft, or if the data is compromised in any other way, has to notify national data protection authorities within 24 hours.
Telecommunication companies and Internet service providers will be required to reveal the nature and size of the breach within the first 24 hours. In case they fail to provide that data straight away they must at least reveal “initial information” and then provide all the details within 3 days. The service providers will have to tell the world what data has been compromised, along with the steps they are going to take to fix the situation.
Apparently, the companies won’t have to make a public statement unless the breach “is likely to adversely affect” personal data or privacy. Then the corporations have to take steps to warn affected parties. The critics admit it is pretty much like the status quo in the European Union – rules like this have existed since 2011. But new regulations appeared to be more specific about the timeframes within which the incidents in question have to be reported. The new law will also require companies to pay more attention to the type of information compromised. In the meanwhile, there are still exceptions from the rule. For example, ISPs and telcos won’t be required to pass on the information in cases where there are “justified national security reasons”. If information is encrypted, they won’t have to tell anyone either.
