Sippel’s appeal to privacy pros: Help me maintain human dignity

While the work of privacy can sometimes get caught up in the details of PIAs and subject access requests, at the IAPP’s Global Privacy Summit on Wednesday keynote speaker German MEP Birgit Sippel made it clear the stakes are high, indeed.

Privacy is vital, she said, for the preservation of human rights and dignity and protecting democracy in the 21st century.

It is her goal as EU Parliament rapporteur for the ePrivacy Regulation, she emphasized, to create the highest standard of data protection, one that sees both human dignity and innovation flourish.
