Abstract

Data matching operations have been promoted as an administrative panacea that helps to reduce costs while maximising efficiency and combating fraud. Nevertheless, they may constitute at the same time a brutal invasion into individuals' privacy. After an extensive effort to define precisely data matching and distinguish such processing from similar filing operations, a data protection approach will be attempted through a given axis of analysis in order to demonstrate the strengths and weaknesses of this legislative approach.
