European Commission notes that spying of its citizens, companies and leaders is unacceptable and that citizens of US and EU need to be reassured about protection of their data while companies need to be reassured that the existing agreements between the two regions are both respected and enforced. The Commission has outlined a total of six areas that it believes requires actions including swift adoption of EU’s data protection reforms; Making Safe Harbour safer; Strengthening data protection safeguards in the law enforcement area; commitment from the US for making use of a legal framework; Addressing European concerns in the on-going US reform process; and promoting privacy standards internationally.
