Data Protection in Practice: The European Data Protection Case Handling Workshop

Wojciech Wiewiórowski

At the end of last month, the EDPS had the privilege of hosting the 31st edition of the annual European Data Protection Case Handling Workshop at which we welcomed colleagues from 28 EU and non-EU data protection authorities.

The unique set up of the workshop is an opportunity to meet a wide array of practitioners and to share our experiences of investigating complaints, providing guidance to controllers and enforcing data protection law.

Llanto por la muerte de Giovanni Buttarelli

Leonardo CERVERA NAVAS

Desde que se hizo pública la noticia del fallecimiento de Giovanni Buttarelli, he recibido más de un centenar de mensajes de condolencias, la mayoría en inglés, pero muchos también en español, desde España y desde Iberoamérica. Por eso, escribo este modesto tributo a su memoria en la lengua de Cervantes, para significar que la comunidad española e iberoamericana de protección también llora su pérdida.

Can We Trust Our Artificial Eyes?

Every group of trainees that comes to work with us at the EDPS organises their own conference on a topic of interest. These events are a platform for the younger generation to share fresh – and sometimes provocative! – ideas. For this conference, the team chose a timely and exciting subject – the potential consequences of technological enhancements to our bodies for human rights and privacy.
 

Top of the class: the EDPS goes back to school!

Giovanni Buttarelli

It may come as a surprise to some of you, given how fresh-faced and youthful I appear, but it has been some time now since I was at school! Indeed, there was a time when life was a lot less digital, and when the GDPR was just a distant dream. How times have changed!

Building a better understanding of the EU and of data protection issues among citizens starts with young people. I am therefore delighted that this year, for the first time, the EDPS participated in the EU’s Back to School initiative.
