Parliament Internal Market Committee Chair MEP Anna Cavazzini said EU lawmakers will have to address questions raised following last week’s insurrection in the U.S. Capitol as part of talks on the Digital Services Act, Euractiv reports.

Preserving “fundamental rights” within the DSA is “a good starting point,” she said. Editor's note: This IAPP infographic puts recent EU data initiatives in context.
