The European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) has produced a note setting out its priorities for 2017. The EDPS has responsibility for monitoring how EU institutions process personal data and has a consultative role in relation to EU data protection legislation and policies. Aside from reviewing the data protection framework as it relates to EU institutions, the EDPS has highlighted privacy in electronic communications as one of its key priorities for the year ahead. In particular, the EDPS will advocate for the privacy standards enshrined in the European Convention on Human Rights to be introduced into secondary legislation on electronic communications.
