2020 Highlights: A focus on regulatory priorities, digital issues and children’s data privacy.
During her keynote address, CNIL President Marie Laure Denis said they are focusing on online advertising and cookies currently, with a draft recommendation open for public consultation now, which includes modalities for obtaining consent. By the end of April, a final recommendation should be published.
She also noted that they are prioritising “digital issues” in everyday life as they affect citizens and professionals alike. In addition, she pledged that the CNIL is committed to providing innovation and public expertise in the realms of digital technology and cybersecurity, as it relates to data protection.
Another key issue faced by DPAs throughout the EU is finding ways to handle the deluge of complaints coming in. Dale Sunderland, deputy Commissioner of the Irish Data Protection Commission seconded that notion. He said his agency has gotten over 10,000 complaints. This makes prioritisation of work more important than ever. Sunderland’s DPC is also focusing on draft guidance for the protection of children under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). He mentioned that it is a hot topic for DPAs throughout the EU.
Other hot topics at the conference are highlighted below.
