With new legislation on data protection in the EU now in place, our greatest challenge moving into 2020 is to ensure that this legislation produces the promised results.

Awareness of the issues surrounding data protection and privacy and the importance of rotecting these fundamental rights is at an all time high and we cannot allow this momentum to decline.
