"You've got to be watching what's echoing through the chambers in the E.U. and what you're hearing about possible changes in legislation," he says. "And you should begin looking at the strongest examples of data protection laws that currently exist within the E.U., like Germany and France, and try to measure yourself against those. I can't imagine it gets much worse than that."
