The European Data Protection Supervisor, Wojciech Wiewiórowski,

invites you to his presentation to press and media of the EDPS

Annual Report 2022

Following the presentation of the European Data Protection Supervisor’s (EDPS) 2022 Annual Report at the European Parliament, we invite you to a press conference to present an overview of the EDPS’ activities in 2022. As Wojciech Wiewiórowski pursues the rest of his EDPS mandate, the press conference will also present the progress made to achieve his goals set out in the EDPS Strategy 2020-2024 to shape a safer digital future.

Looking back, the year 2022 has been eventful. We doubled down on our efforts to support EU lawmakers with their initiatives – including on health, artificial intelligence (AI), cybersecurity, media freedom and democracy, crime – whilst ensuring that these uphold individuals’ fundamental rights to data protection and privacy. Particular focus of our work also permeated to supervising the EU’s Area of Freedom, Security and Justice, international transfers of personal data, and pursuing initiatives in the fields of technology monitoring and foresight, with TechSonar and TechDispatch.

Going forward, the upcoming years of the EDPS’ mandate will focus on a series of priorities, such as the EU’s interoperability framework and international cooperation to promote global common approaches on privacy and data protection challenges. We will invest our efforts to make sure that data protection and privacy, as fundamental rights, are respected at the borders of the European Union. Digital innovation, such as AI, and its impact on privacy will also remain high on the EDPS’ agenda.
