Information Accountability Foundation Executive Director and Chief Strategist Martin Abrams wrote in a blog post about how accountability can be enforced similar to other privacy management mechanisms. Abrams writes accountability has made its way into Canadian privacy law and the EU General Data Protection Regulation. While accountability requires a different oversight approach compared to technical privacy violations, an infraction can still be found in the event of an insufficient privacy notice. “Accountability failures typically are more difficult to identify and require more descriptive enforcement to make organisations answerable,” Abrams writes. “Accountability is enforceable, but it requires new skills that are beginning to emerge at data protection agencies.”
