Statement: EDPS supports EU legislator on security but recommends re-thinking on EU PNR

Europe is under attack. In the wake of new terrorist atrocities, the EU and the governments of its Member States are under pressure to take meaningful action.

More than ever, this is a time for solidarity in Europe; for the EU to stand united around our values and fundamental freedoms. The data protection community continues to offer its unconditional support in these difficult times and acknowledges that the EU needs to put reinforced measures in place to address the extraordinary difficulties facing Europe today.
