The European Union recently announced the creation of a new body that will have an impact on data management and storage in order to improve overall security.
It comes as a new Eurobarometer survey found that three-quarters of people are more worried about the security of their data in the past year, leading to the creation of the European Cybercrime Centre.
Kevin Wharram, independent IT security consultant, said that a lot of the changes to be introduced will focus on data management frameworks and ensuring there is a stronger reporting infrastructure when data loss occurs.
"There's been a lot of issues with O2 and RBS (Royal Bank of Scotland) lately. How do we know it's not a hack attack? How do we know they've not been compromised? The problem is there's no communication," he said.
Moving forward he suggested there should be a framework so that when small businesses have lost data following a breach they can report it confidentially so the information can be correlated with other attacks.
