The German Parliament, the Bundestag, has named Social Democratic Party of Germany Member and former Justice Secretary of State Ulrich Kelber as the new federal data protection commissioner, Handelsblatt reports. Kelber will succeed Andrea Voßhoff, who has held the title for the last five years. In his new role, Kelber plans to continue the enforcement of the EU General Data Protection Regulation. "Above all, it is important to harmonize it in practice, especially with respect to the large Internet companies that have their headquarters outside the EU," said Kelber, who added all EU member states should apply the "same practice in the enforcement."
