Friday 22 January 2016 | 11:12 CET | News
The European Union's institutions and bodies are making steady progress implementing data protection rules, according to European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS), Giovanni Buttarelli. "The institutions themselves are accountable for applying the rules and integrating data protection principles in their daily work. I am pleased that the results of our survey confirm that they increasingly do," said Buttarelli. The EDPS conducts a review of selected areas of data protection at 61 EU institutions every two years.
