Recent data privacy breaches involving Sony and Apple show that "companies do not take the protection of personal data seriously enough," said Viviane Reding, the EU commissioner in charge of justice and fundamental rights, in an interview with EurActiv.
"What has happened in the last few weeks just shows that things are not going in the right direction. The protection of personal data doesn't work properly," said Reding, a vice-president of the European Commission.
