EDPS Annual Report 2017 presentation at LIBE - Giovanni Buttarelli
European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) video published Mar 27, 2018: The EDPS Giovanni Buttarelli presents the Annual Report 2017 at Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs, 20 March 2018, Brussels.
Legislation | European Data Protection Supervisor | edps.europa.eu: "Designed to grapple with the realities of global, ubiquitous data in the internet era, the EU’s new data protection legislation should provide increased legal certainty for both individuals and organisations processing data and greater protection for the individual in general ... the reform of the EU’s data protection rules which began in January 2012, has resulted in two key pieces of legislation:
- a general Regulation on data protection [GDPR] (679/2016) which was adopted on 24 May 2016, applicable as of 25 May 2018; and
- a specific Directive (680/2016) on data protection in the area of police and justice, adopted on 5 May 2016, applicable as of 6 May 2018."
