Council of Europe updates Convention 108

On May 18 the Council of Europe adopted an amending Protocol which updates its data protection convention, known as “Convention 108”.

The modernisation of the Convention for the Protection of Individuals with regard to Automatic Processing of Personal Data, the only existing legally binding international treaty with global relevance in this field, addresses the challenges to privacy resulting from the use of new information and communication technologies, and strengthens the convention’s mechanism to ensure its effective implementation.
