“Personal data is the new oil of the Internet and the new currency of the digital world … The Government considers issues of Online Safety and Security to be of the utmost importance and a continuing and informed debate is needed to ensure that as a society we make the right choices in the future. As we move toward a world of ubiquitous broadband, governments around the world will need to be increasingly engaged and open about the right mix of ap-proaches to these issues.“ [DIGITAL BRITAIN Final Report, June 2009]
