CBP, which from 1 January Authority Personal Information will be called, will from that moment extra powers. Also new European regulations coming. Kohnstamm says in an interview with BNR the fear that the shortage of staff has implications for the treatment of reports of data breaches. According to him, there are initially created by the Ministry of Security and Justice, an estimated 60 000 cases per year. These would be adjusted later for no apparent reason at 6,000 cases.

According Kohnstamm there would be five times that of personnel needed to carry out the new tasks.

This would allow distinction to be drawn between serious and less serious alerts. On that basis, the regulator decides whether further investigation is needed.
