Today and tomorrow Wojciech and I are attending the Annual Conference of European Data Protection Authorities, what insiders call the ‘Spring Conference’, which this year is hosted in Budapest by the Hungarian National Authority for Data Protection and Freedom of Information. I was given the honour by the President of the authority, Attila Péterfalvi, of delivering the opening keynote speech this morning, in which I called on all independent European data protection authorities to rise to the challenge of the great reforms in the legal frameworks which are taking place this year.
