Insurance Europe recently published an overview of its key comments in relation to the General Data Protection Regulation. It recognises protection of policyholder data as a priority for insurers, but stressed the need to avoid negative unintended consequences for the insurance industry and consumers. Amongst other matters, Insurance Europe voices its support for fraud prevention as a 'legitimate interest', which would provide insurers with a legal basis to combat insurance fraud.  It also welcomes the proposal to explicitly permit transmission of data within a group of companies.
