Is Israel on its way to align to the GDPR?

On July 23, the Justice Department has published a draft bill to amend the Protection of Privacy Law, by changing substantial definitions such as “Data”, “Sensitive Data”, “Database Controller”, “Processing” and “Processor”. The draft bill will reduce considerably the archaic obligation to register databases.

The draft bill is the first of three bills that are aimed at updating the law and adjusting it to the modern era. The additional two bills, which will be introduced within the next few months, will include, inter-alia, enhancement of the Protection of Privacy Authority’s enforcement powers, lawful grounds of processing, and additional data subjects’ rights.

Members of the IDPF forum are invited to an open discussion with the Justice Department representative who took part in drafting the bill.
