ICO hosts European Data Protection Authorities

Published 18 June 2015

In May the ICO hosted the European Conference of Data Protection Authorities. The event, which was held in Manchester, greeted 90 information data authorities from various international jurisdictions.

Topics covered included the impact of the EU data regulation reforms and the challenges of data protection authorities in adapting to the digitalized age.

Christopher Graham, who spoke at the event warned regulators that as technology advances the risk to safeguarding personal data increases. He therefore advocated pooling regulator efforts and fostering co-operation so that authorities don't get left behind.
