EU / CoE - Data Protection Day

Statement from Vice-President Frattini, on behalf of the European Commission, on the occasion of Data Protection Day (28 January). Data protection issues affect everyone, but are not always well understood. That is why I welcome and support the Council of Europe's initiative to raise the profile of data protection by declaring 28 January 2007 'Data Protection Day', date of signature of the Convention 108 regulating the processing of personal data.
