2022 Highlights

Lots of Great Insights from the CNIL and the EDPB

We were excited to see two hundred and fifty people at our third annual IAPP Data Protection Intensive: France 2022 in Paris!

In her keynote address, CNIL President Marie-Laure Denis outlined strategic priorities for the next two years. Regulators from the CNIL and EDPB talked about the questions raised by ‘Schrems II’ on data access in Europe, how the CNIL will maintain a strong line on consent, how the EDPB is working on fines, dark patterns, blockchain, and more.

There was also much discussion about international data transfers, the Google Analytics decision and how great everyone looked in 3D.

If you would like to gain all the learning and networking benefits of experiencing IAPP Data Protection Intensive: France 2023 in person, we would love to see you there.
