We are delighted to announce that, following the Decision 16/2022 of March 2022 of the executive director of ENISA (European Union Agency for Cybersecurity) Maria Raphael, the managing partner of Privacy Minders, has been selected as a Member of ENISA Ad-Hoc Group on Data Protection Engineering (AHWG).
Regulation (EU) 2019/881, Article 20, stipulates that the Executive Director of ENISA may set up ad hoc working groups (AHWG) composed of experts, including experts from the Member States’ competent authorities, where necessary, and within ENISA’s objectives and tasks. Ad hoc working groups provide ENISA with specific advice and expertise.
The scope of work of the ENISA AHWG on Data Protection Engineering concerns the analysis of available or emerging technologies and techniques on engineering data protection principles (as stipulated by the GDPR) into practice.
AHWG will support ENISA in identifying, analysing, and putting forward analyses, recommendations, and relevant use cases on how (cybersecurity) technologies and techniques can support engineering data protection and the fulfilment of the GDPR data protection principles.
Specifically, the AHWG will identify significant topics related to data protection engineering, provide guidance on how to analyse these topics in order to achieve the goals of the study, discuss and possibly draft opinions, support drafting of analysis on specific topics, deliver input to and review documentation related to ENISA activities and outputs in the area of privacy and data protection, contribute to the validation of outputs in relation to privacy and data protection and generally advise ENISA in carrying out its tasks in relation to cybersecurity aspects in privacy and data protection.
