Politico interviews Giovanni Buttarelli, EDPS, in the run-up to it's annual data event "Unlocking the Potential of Digital". He stresses the importance of trust and confidence in data protection, particularly as we approach a world defined by big data, and emphasises the importance of people being in control of their personal data. He notes that two years after the Snowden revelations, little conclusive action has been taken by the EU and states that the adoption of the EU data protection reform would represent an important step towards restoring trust in data protection.
