What’s wrong with the GDPR?
Since its entry into force, the GDPR has come under mounting criticism from privacy activists and even some of Europe’s own data protection authorities for failing to deliver. The Irish Data Protection Commission in particular has been the target of blame, with critics lamenting that its enforcement of the legions of Dublin-headquartered tech companies like Meta and Google under its jurisdiction has been slow and limp.
Wiewiórowski, who leads the EU’s in-house privacy regulator, is gathering data protection decision-makers in Brussels to open the debate about the GDPR’s failings and lay the groundwork for an inevitable revaluation of the law when the new EU Commission takes office in 2024.
“If you compare the world before GDPR, and the world with GDPR, I see enormous progress,” the privacy chief said. “But I would be very careful in announcing the ultimate success of the GDPR.”
