Acting European Data Protection Supervisor Wojciech Wiewiórowski released an opinion on law enforcement’s ability to access information for investigations. Wiewiórowski released the opinion in response to the European Commission’s E-Evidence law, which was published April 2018. “Ensuring EU authorities have effective and efficient means to access information stored in another state is essential to the security of the European Union,” Wiewiórowski writes. “However, it cannot come at the expense of the rights and freedoms we enjoy as EU citizens. A balance must be found which provides for greater EU security without compromising fundamental rights and data protection principles.” Editor's Note: Jennifer Baker covered the release of the E-Evidence law in this piece for The Privacy Advisor.
