-How to comply with Belgium’s data breach notification recommendation, Heidi Waem, Associate, Allen&Overy ,  Tom De Cordier, Counsel, Allen&Overy
Following a number of data breaches in Belgium, the Belgian Privacy Commission issued a recommendation on security measures and introduced a data breach notification duty for businesses. This action is extraordinary, as the Belgian data protection act does not yet contain an express data breach notification. What do you need to do to prepare to comply with the recommendation?
