The National Data Protection Association has come up with a draft of new legislation created by the Ministry of the Interior that can significantly reduce the right of citizens to privacy.
The new rules presume that a citizen will not have the right to information about which data is collected by governmental authorities if it could harm the security of the state and businesses. The regulations also provide a green light for using face recognition software that will be used in surveillance cameras.
They will also limit the activities of government data protection commissioners by preventing them from checking the technical data protection capabilities to ensure that patients, such as hospitals or clients of law firms, are safe. At the same time, they will prevent them from carrying out investigations at the request of citizens, reporting cases of data leaks.
