FRA Symposium on data protection

FRA expert Niraj Nathwani speaks about the FRA Symposium on "The EU data protection reform: new fundamental rights guarantees".

Nathwani says that the event, held in Vienna on 10 May 2012, will be an excellent opportunity for experts and policy makers to meet in person.

The protection of personal data is a fundamental right for everyone living in the European Union. Additional legislation to be put in place aims at filling in gaps in the laws and making data protection a reality in practice as well as in theory.
