EDPS Anniversary: celebrating 20 years of protecting personal data

Since 2004, the EDPS protects the personal data of EU citizens and guides EU institutions, bodies, offices and agencies so that they are exemplary in upholding data protection principles. The celebration of these two decades is an opportunity to reflect on past, present, and future challenges for a modern regulator in order to pave the way forward for the next 20 years.
