The EU Commission put up a new proposal on July 4, 2023, for procedural guidelines to standardise and simplify collaboration between EU Member State Data Protection Authorities (DPAs) when enforcing the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in cross-border instances. A decentralised enforcement model is used by the GDPR. The GDPR may be enforced on the national levels of EU member states by their individual DPAs. However, in circumstances involving cross-border components, the GDPR mandates that all involved DPAs work in line with the “one-stop-shop” of the GDPR through systems of consistency and cooperation. Although these procedures lay the groundwork for consistent implementation of the GDPR across the EU and establish fundamental principles of cooperation, the EU Commission found that additional legislative action was required to improve the effectiveness and harmonisation of cross-border GDPR enforcement action.
The necessity of GDPR enforcement has been repeatedly emphasised by several EU institutions, authorities, and national DPAs. According to them, it is “a cornerstone of the EU digital single market and a vital piece of legislation ensuring a human-centric approach to technology.” The suggestion might represent a shift towards a more centralised GDPR enforcement paradigm, with a stronger emphasis on the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) and EU Commission.
The AISym4MED platform addresses data privacy and security in this regard by fusing cutting-edge anonymization methods, attribute-based privacy controls, and reliable tracking systems. Additionally, this platform will make use of federated technologies to replicate anonymous data from closed borders, encouraging the indirect evaluation of more datasets while adhering to GDPR-compliant standards for privacy and security.
