Chris Docksey gives keynote at international conference


Our board member Chris Docksey was the keynote speaker for the second day of the 41st International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners open session.

He spoke about the blossoming of data protection accountability across the globe, the philosophy behind accountability and the toolbox that can be used to demonstrate it.

Chris emphasised the inclusion of the accountability principle in data protection legislation, including our own 2017 Law, and the need for controllers and regulators to embrace this fundamental principle to ‘give life’ to data protection compliance and regulations.

Chris closed with this quote:

“Not everything that is legally compliant and technically feasible is morally sustainable”
– Giovanni Buttarelli (1957 – 2019 ) of EDPS – European Data Protection Supervisor
