Overview Edit

The National Commission for Computing and Civil Liberties (CNIL) (Commission nationale de l'informatique et des libertés) supervises compliance with French law by inspecting IT systems and applications. The Commission uses its inspection and investigation powers to investigate complaints, improve its knowledge of some specific files, better appreciate the implications of using IT in different sectors, and following up on its deliberations.

The CNIL also monitors the security of information systems by checking that all precautions are taken to prevent data from being distorted or disclosed to unauthorized parties. The CNIL may impose a variety of sanctions, including, warnings, injunctions, financial sanctions, and orders to stop processing operations.
