On Monday the 29th of January, Homo Digitalis had the great pleasure and honor to participate in Computers, Privacy & Data Protection (CPDP) 2021. The panel in which we participated, was organised by MATIS Project and its moderator was Mr. Juraj Sajfert from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel.

The speakers include:

-Frank Scheurmans, Supervisory Body for Police Information (BE);

-Fanny Coudert, European Data Protection Supervisor (EU);

-Anna Moscibroda, European Commission (EU).

Our organization was represented by our co-founder Eleftherios Chelioudakis.

It has been two and a half years since the Member States of the European Union had to transpose the new rules on data protection for the law enforcement sector into their national laws. This includes the extensive provisions on the independent supervisory authorities in Chapter IV of the Directive (EU) 2016/680. However, its Article 47 of the powers of supervisory authorities is weak and vague. This pane therefore analysed the practice of supervision of the law enforcement sector in the Digital Age.
