If there's anyone we could call an expert on data protection in the EU, it's Christian D'Cunha. Years back, he was charged with leading the review of the EU Data Retention Directive — no easy task — before he moved to a role at the European Data Protection Supervisor's office as a policy assistant under former EDPS Peter Hustinx and then, his successor, the late Giovanni Buttarelli. Now, D'Cunha has taken a role at the European Commission at DG Connect, a segment of the Cybersecurity and Digital Privacy Unit. In this episode of The Privacy Advisor Podcast, D'Cunha discusses what he learned about the art of negotiation during his leadership role on the Directive, the future of ethics in the privacy profession and whether we're ever going to see that ePrivacy Regulation come to fruition.
