PETS- protecting personal data

Another press release about privacy enhancing technologies (PETs):
MPs have joined the European Commission in backing the use of privacy enhancing technologies (PETs) to protect personal data, despite UK government fears it could limit the activities of security and law-enforcement agencies. The European Union (EU) wants to encourage the development of standards for the processing of personal data using Pets. Such a move could lead to international standardisation of technical rules on security measures for data protection, according to a report from the Commons European Scrutiny Committee.
