Data Protection Bill 2018: Committee Stage (Resumed)
Senator Alice-Mary Higgins has said all I wanted to say about fines. I agree with the Minister that we all want to see the highest standards implemented by public bodies to ensure data protection. For all of the reasons outlined by the previous speaker, nothing in the amendment would prohibit organisations from adopting the highest standards of data protection protocols and directives. It has the potential to complement and enforce them in a practical and tangible way.
