Abstract

It is more than a decade since Scott McNealy, then CEO of Sun Microsystems, (in)famously declared: ‘You have zero privacy anyway. Get over it!’1 His statement caused quite a stir, and has since been quoted many times in various forms by both privacy sceptics and champions.

It turns out that rumours of the death of privacy were greatly exaggerated. Indeed, we are convinced that data protection and privacy law have never been more relevant or important than they are today. The fundamental principles of international privacy law set out three decades ago in instruments such as the OECD Guidelines and the Council of Europe Convention 108 have, on the whole, stood the test of time. Concepts such as fairness, transparency, lawful justification for processing, reasonable access to information, and appropriate security arrangements not only remain fundamental to regulation in this field, but are also are of growing interest and concern to individuals, businesses, and governments (see below).
