It was clear from the keynote stage at the IAPP Global Privacy Summit 2019 in Washington Thursday that it wasn't the first time Irish Data Protection Commissioner Helen Dixon had heard the question: When are you going to issue a fine? Because of the number of tech companies headquartered in Dublin, Dixon conceded, "My office is the internet authority." But she was quick to remind the 4,000 privacy professionals from around the globe that a data protection authority isn't only there to enforce, but there’s a lot of other responsibilities, too. Dixon and fellow regulators Elizabeth Denham from the U.K. Information Commissioner’s Office and Head of the Austrian Data Protection Authority Andrea Jelinek discussed their priorities as enforcers, as well as the much-anticipated question: When are those sanctions coming? IAPP Editor Angelique Carson, CIPP/US, has the story for The Privacy Advisor.
