The Regulation 1725/2018 introduces a duty on all EU Institutions and bodies to report certain types of personal data breach to the EDPS. They must do this within 72 hours of becoming aware of the breach, where feasible.
If the breach is likely to result in a high risk of adversely affecting individuals’ rights and freedoms, they must also inform those individuals without undue delay. All EU institutions and bodies should ensure that they have the procedures that enable them to detect a breach, investigate, take the necessary corrective measures and report. They must keep a record of any personal data breaches, regardless of whether they are required to notify the EDPS.
The EDPS Annual Report 2021 provides an overview of the EDPS’ supervisory activities that contribute to shaping Europe’s digital future. In particular, the Annual Report 2021 includes the EDPS’ work on international transfers of personal data; on COVID-19; on the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice; as well as the EDPS' legislative consultations and technology monitoring activities, to name a few examples.
The Executive Summary of the EDPS Annual Report 2021 will be made available in all official languages of the EU in due course.
