The European Directive on Data Protection recognizes the right of data subjects to control the usage of their information. However, to date there are no data protection solutions that involve data subjects in the definition and enforcement of data protection policies. In this paper we present the foundation of a novel approach to personalized data protection in which users play a central role in the authoring and enforcement of the policies governing the access and usage to their data. We discuss the challenges of designing a personalized data protection framework using personalized medicine as an illustrative scenario.
