European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS): Enormous energy put into reforming data protection rules must deliver strong and effective protection for EU citizens (Press release, pdf):

"Peter Hustinx, EDPS, says: "As a society, we are increasingly reliant on technology that processes huge amounts of our personal information. Electronic surveillance is commonplace with profiling and "big data" putting our privacy under strain. The reform of the data protection framework is a momentous opportunity to redress the balance and guarantee this fundamental right for all EU citizens for generations to come. It is vital that the outcome of the negotiations in the European Parliament and the Council is a reform package that delivers a high level of data protection."
