The bi-annual conference of German privacy commissioners has presented its resolutions on current privacy topics. The conference criticised the reform of the German intelligence authorities which allows for wider data transfer between state agencies, calling this unconstitutional. The Conference also discussed cloud operating systems. The Conference commented that users are forced to take steps to protect their own data and called for providers to offer software with privacy-friendly settings. The Conference announced that its goal is to protect German data privacy standards at the EU level.
