2019 was a year of great change at the EDPS. It marked the last year of an incredibly successful and productive mandate, which saw public awareness of the issues surrounding data protection and privacy increase tenfold. At the beginning of what is not only a new year, but a new mandate for the EDPS, January 2020’s Newsletter provides you with a retrospective look over the past twelve months, as well as an overview of some important EDPS events taking place this month. Read on for ten things you might have missed from 2019:

It’s been a busy year at the EDPS.
