The state of privacy 2017: mid-mandate report, Speech by Giovanni Buttarelli for the presentation of the 2016 EDPS Annual Report to the LIBE Committee, European Parliament
Koordinierung der Aufsicht und IT-Großsysteme
Die EU verfügt über eine Reihe von IT-Großsystemen, darunter Eurodac, das Visa-Informationssystem, das Schengener Informationssystem, das Zollinformationssystem oder das Binnenmarkt-Informationssystem.
Die Aufsicht über diese Datenbanken teilen sich die nationalen Datenschutzbehörden und der EDSB.
Zur Sicherstellung eines hohen und einheitlichen Datenschutzniveaus arbeiten die nationalen Datenschutzbehörden und der EDSB zusammen, um die Aufsicht über diese Datenbanken zu koordinieren.
The new EU data protection framework consists of much more than just the GDPR. New rules for the EU institutions and ePrivacy are yet to be finalised, and remain a key focal point for EDPS work. As well as providing advice to the legislator on these new rules, the EDPS has started working with the EU institutions and bodies to prepare them for the changes to come. A particular focus of his efforts in 2016 was on promoting accountability, a central pillar of the GDPR which it is safe to assume will also be integrated into the new rules for EU institutions and bodies.
In 2016, the EDPS also made a considerable effort to help move the global debate on data protection and privacy forward and mainstream data protection into international policies. He advised the EU legislator on the Umbrella agreement and the Privacy Shield and engaged with data protection and privacy commissioners from every continent. He also continued to pursue new initiatives, such as the Ethics Advisory Group, through which he intends to stimulate global debate on the ethical dimension of data protection in the digital era.
The EDPS aims to make data protection as simple and effective as possible for all involved. This requires ensuring that EU policy both reflects the realities of data protection in the digital era and encourages compliance through accountability.
The December 2016 edition of the EDPS Newsletter covers recently adopted Guidelines on Administrative Inquiries and Disciplinary Proceedings, the EDPS Opinion on Personal Information Management Systems (PIMS) and many other EDPS activities.
