Wojciech Wiewiórowski has officially been confirmed as the new European data protection supervisor. Wiewiórowski had served as assistant supervisor during the 2014–19 mandate under Giovanni Buttarelli, who died earlier this year. “I am delighted to have been selected as the new EDPS and look forward to continuing my work with the dedicated and talented team of individuals that make up this small but incredibly important institution,” Wiewiórowski said. “While the EU currently holds considerable influence in the regulation of the digital economy, we cannot take this position for granted, nor allow our standards to slip.” Editor's Note: IAPP Staff Writer Joe Duball wrote about the vote to confirm Wiewiórowski as the new EDPS in this piece for The Privacy Advisor.
