The EDPS issues roughly ten newsletters every year. Running through the main developments in the EDPS activities, the newsletter gives a snapshot of recently adopted opinions and other documents (legislative opinions, comments, prior check opinions, etc.). It also lists newly appointed Data Protection Officers, presents recent speeches from the EDPS and the Assistant EDPS, as well as events in the field of data protection.
