  17. 17. New EU Data Protection reform (March’14) The same rules for all companies – regardless of their establishment: Today European companies have to adhere to stricter standards than their competitors established outside the EU but also doing business on our Single Market. With the reform, companies based outside of Europe will have to apply the same rules. European regulators will be equipped with strong powers to enforce this: data protection authorities will be able to fine companies who do not comply with EU rules with up to 2% of their global annual turnover. European companies with strong procedures for protecting personal data will have a competitive advantage on a global scale at a time when the issue is becoming increasingly sensitive. Source:
