EDPS reports on its 2015-2019 mandate
The European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) released a report on its “actions and achievements” over its 2015-2019 mandate. As reported by IAPP, the report recaps the main objectives and action points set forth by Buttarelli, former European Data Protection Supervisor Giovanni, in 2015 and how the EDPS implemented these objectives. According to the new EDPS, ‘our watchword over the past five years has been accountability. Accountability of controllers for what they do with the personal data of others, and accountability of supervisory authorities in exercising, with integrity and consistency, the enhanced powers entrusted to us by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)’.
