G7 Privacy Advocates and Privacy Authorities want to advance DFFT

The Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information (BfDI), Professor Ulrich Kelber, is satisfied with the outcome of this year’s G7 Roundtable of the data protection and privacy authorities: We have agreed to work together on the basis for a free and trusting flow of data, focusing on the protection of citizens’ personal data. For this path of the “Data Free Flow with Trust” or DFFT, we will advertise at our respective governments.
