The European Association of Data Protection Professionals (EADPP) was founded in Maastricht in 2018, The Netherlands. This initiative to advance the data protection profession in Europe is based on the premise of professionalism set forth in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The Association's purpose is to champion and promote the fundamental principles of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) around the world. The members of our Association are driven by a deep commitment to safeguarding personal data, fostering digital trust, and empowering individuals to exercise their data rights. Through education, advocacy, collaboration, and innovation, we aspire to create a world where data privacy is a universally respected cornerstone of the digital age.
Together, let us build a stronger foundation for data protection, GDPR compliance, and privacy-preserved data sharing in Europe and beyond.
In its first year the EADPP has swiftly grown to over 1,000 members across Europe.
The EADPP would like to cordially invite all data protection professionals active within the EEA to apply for membership of the European Association of Data Protection Professionals. To join this unique EU-based initiative, please apply here.
