The Executive Summary of the EDPS Annual Report 2021 will be made available in all official languages of the EU in due course.
L'année 2020 a été unique pour le monde et, par extension, pour le Contrôleur européen de la protection des données (CEPD). Comme beaucoup d'autres organisations, le CEPD a dû adapter ses méthodes de travail en tant qu'employeur, mais aussi son travail car la crise sanitaire du COVID-19 a renforcé l'appel à la protection de la vie privée des individus.
Ce rapport annuel donne un aperçu de toutes les activités du CEPD en 2020.
Le résumé du rapport annuel 2020 du CEPD sera disponible dans toutes les langues officielles de l'UE prochainement.
2019 could be described as a year of transition, across Europe and the world. With new legislation on data protection in the EU now in place, the greatest challenge moving into 2020 and beyond is to ensure that this legislation produces the promised results. Awareness of the issues surrounding data protection and privacy, and the importance of protecting these fundamental rights, is at an all-time high and this momentum cannot be allowed to decline.
This Annual Report provides an insight into all EDPS activities in 2019, which was the last year of a five-year EDPS mandate. EDPS activities therefore focused on consolidating the achievements of previous years, assessing the progress made and starting to define priorities for the future.
2018 was a busy year for the EDPS and a pivotal year for data protection in general. Under new data protection rules, the rights of every individual living in the EU are now better protected than ever. Public awareness about the value of online privacy is at an all-time high.
The 2018 Annual Report provides an insight into all EDPS activities in 2018. Chief among these were our efforts to prepare for the new legislation. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became fully applicable across the EU on 25 May 2018 and new data protection rules for the EU institutions are also now in place. Working with the new European Data Protection Board (EDPB), the EDPS aims to ensure consistent protection of individuals’ rights, wherever they live in the EU.
