Data protection: a deal is possible before end of 2015, says EDPS
In the second part of his exclusive interview with viEUws, Giovanni Buttarelli, European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) discusses the ongoing trilogue on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). He is confident that a deal can be found before the end of 2016. He explores the impact of the recent European Court of Justice’s ruling on safe harbour on the implementation of the future data protection package. Giovanni Buttarelli gives an assessment of both the EU-US data protection “umbrella agreement” and the new EU proposal on Passenger Name Record. Finally, he presents his proposed EDPS new Ethics Board which is destined to unfold a new chapter for data protection. Jennifer Baker, leading Tech journalist, has the story.
