Effective data protection also requires cooperation between data protection authorities at international level and the development of cross-border standards. In fact, it must be possible, in the case of transnational data processing with which we are increasingly confronted, to provide coordinated answers and to guarantee equal rights for all persons, regardless of their place of residence. To this end, the Federal Data Protection Supervisor participates in the work of the Council of Europe, the European Conference and the International Conference of Data Protection Supervisors, the Schengen and Eurodac joint supervisory bodies and the French-speaking Association of Data Protection Authorities.
