During Wednesday's Article 29 Working Party press conference announcing the election of its next chairwoman, Andrea Jelinek, outgoing chairwoman and current CNIL President Isabelle Falque-Pierrotin expressed some concern that 26 of the 28 EU member states have yet to align national laws to ensure data protection authorities will be resourced and independent ahead of the May 25 General Data Protection Regulation deadline, EUobserver reports. The WP29 will be replaced by the European Data Protection Board, which will need a "consistency mechanism" to streamline enforcement in the region. "If there is one authority that is not in a capacity to take part [in] the consistency mechanism once facing a transborder case," Falque-Pierrotin warned, "it means the whole system is stopped." Meanwhile, Politico interviewed Falque-Pierrotin on what her next moves will be. Editor's Note: Jedidiah Bracy, CIPP, reported on new WP29 Chairwoman Andrea Jelinek for The Privacy Advisor.
