This paper shows that existing privacy enhancing technologies and the state-of-the-art in research on the field of privacy protection has grew to a considerable maturity up to date, yet privacy protection regulation disregards these advancements and remains in vague terms. Contemporary social situation with regards to privacy protection entails serious arguments why this disparity should rather soon be overcome. It is further shown how this disparity could be overcome by a collection of privacy protection patterns which include technical solutions as well as social models and can be combined into a systemic privacy protection framework that could be declared on the level of regulation itself in much more detailed and concrete terms than today.
