Once falling under the right to privacy as a mere sub-set, now the right to data protection enjoys a fundamental status. The introduction of the famous General Data Protection Regulation marks especially an important step towards elevating the status of the fundamental right to data protection. The new Regulation provides a stronger framework for contested issues such as consent under a strong accountability regime, however mere compliance with the law is not sufficient. This paper emphasizes the need for an integrated ethical approach, which combines ‘the concern for the law’ with a very strong emphasis on managerial responsibility for the firms’ organizational privacy behaviors. What is ultimately required is a value-driven data protection approach, executed by privacy officers with due concern for the very real impact that data related practices may have on the lives of people.
