Abstract: The rapid progress in technology and in the field of electronic data processing has radicalised the conventional handling of personal data, leading to increasing risks and vulnerabilities. It is an unchallenged fact that such risks may have a significant effect on the fundamental rights and freedoms of data subjects. The online environment is exposing personal data to security breaches, hacking and other unlawful forms of processing, regretfully to the detriment of the individuals’ privacy rights. The recent Facebook scandal involving the sharing of users’ personal data with Cambridge Analytica speaks for itself!
