AP: We fail as regulator

Companies have little to fear from the Dutch Data Protection Authority (AP). There are almost never fines for reported violations, reports of data breaches rarely lead to an investigation and the authority is hopelessly behind the facts when it comes to monitoring new developments. The privacy regulator acknowledges that it does not fulfill the statutory duty.

This is made clear in a report by KPMG and a response from AP to those results. The research bureau paints a shocking picture of the functioning of the AP. The researchers conclude that the authority will have to expand considerably in the next cabinet term to protect citizens and help companies in 'digitizing Netherlands'.

In an explanation to the report, the AP writes that developments such as facial recognition, internet of things, algorithms, tracking software, data trading, sexting and smartphone technology "require adequate supervision." Subsequently, the accompanying documents show that the AP is lagging behind in all areas. The KPMG study also shows that the supervision of algorithms is not getting off the ground due to a lack of capacity. "This creates risks of discrimination, exclusion and violation of citizens. For effective supervision of algorithms, investments are required at the AP, "said KPMG.

AP: "Almost every organization processes personal data. As a result, we supervise more organizations than any other regulator. With the current 184 FTE, we are still unable to implement this sufficiently. By way of illustration: other 'broad' regulators such as the AFM, ACM and NVWA have 600, 641 and 2,440 FTEs respectively.
