European privacy supervisor: AVG is still in its Infancy

The GDPR celebrates its third anniversary today, but the privacy law is still in its infancy, says the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS). According to EDPS President Wojciech Wiewiorowski , the GDPR is a three-year-old child who must first learn to walk before he can run.

For the future, Wiewiorowski believes that more should be enforced by European privacy regulators. "It is time for GDPR to deliver, especially with regard to the major players causing systemic damage to the digital ecosystem. Our citizens cannot wait any longer."

Also, according to the EDPS Chair, there is a need for data protection authorities in the EU to grow, as the enforcement of the GDPR puts a disproportionate burden on a few supervisors. Wiewiorowski also argues for more cooperation between European privacy regulators. Finally, the Chair of the EDPS states that the GDPR should be used in conjunction with other laws and regulations.

“In the long run, I think we need to look for more efficient solutions to protect our rights and freedoms. We need to prioritize enforcement against the greatest injustice in our digital ecosystems and meaningfully protect individuals,” said Wiewiorowski.
