A large turnout, new CNIL priorities and a big announcement from the EDPB

Two hundred delegates joined us at the IAPP Data Protection Intensive: France 2023. This year’s attendees included a lot of first-time participants and we set a record for the most KnowledgeNet participants ever at this event, as many privacy pros were excited to renew acquaintances and make new industry connections.

CNIL regulators announced some of their top priorities for the year ahead. Mobile apps, AI and cybersecurity were at the top of their list. The EDPB officially announced its coordinated enforcement action on the role of the data protection officer. When that announcement was made, audible gasps could be heard in the room.
