EDPS closing remarks at the CPDP Conference

European Data Protection Supervisor, Wojciech Wiewiórowski, delivered the closing remarks at the Computers, Privacy and Data Protection Conference, expressing his gratitude for the opportunity to continue a longstanding tradition of the EDPS. 

During the speech, Mr Wiewiórowski reflected on his previous remarks about vulnerability and how data protection should give people choices and opportunities rather than being seen as a privilege. However, this year, he noted conference discussions focused on emerging technologies and their impact on privacy and called for strong leadership to safeguard privacy in the digital ecosystem.
