France: CNIL suggests improvements for proposed law on global security and drone use


The French data protection authority (‘CNIL’) announced that it had given its opinion on the draft law on global security.
In particular, CNIL pointed out that, in its current state, the law does not provide for a system that would safeguard privacy and personal data adequately. More precisely, CNIL emphasized that the proposed legislation includes different provisions relating to the protection of personal data, in particular the amendment of the relevant legal basis to be used in the regulation of video and drone technology.
