      The concern over the pace at which society is changed by technology is real within the European Union and its institutions. Noting its most recent acceleration, it is the rapid integration of data-dependent devices and processes that require closer consideration from policymakers and other key actors. Whether it’s innovation in industry or consumer goods, data is now a central resource that can be found in all parts of the European citizens’ life. The renewed calls for action through the Estonian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, and in conjunction with a variety of European Ministers and Members of Parliament, prescribe a serious case for improved legislation in security, confidentiality, and integration of data in Europe. This issue of the European Files unites the many experts and policymakers in this field that help project a vision of a Europe with a growing, positive, and secure Data Economy.
