The Israeli government has formally published the legislative bill proposing numerous amendments to the Israeli Protection of Privacy Law. If enacted, this would be the most comprehensive amendment to the law since 1996. The bill seeks to amend the definitions of the law’s key terms, thereby expanding the scope of the Law, and to downscale the antiquated obligation to register databases with the Privacy Protection Authority. The bill also seeks to grant draconian enforcement powers to the Privacy Protection Authority.
