Falque-Pierrotin - new digital privacy watchdog

Since 2011, Ms. Falque-Pierrotin has been France’s top privacy regulator, and for the last two years, she has led a group of European data-protection officials.

Now, her role will come into even sharper focus in the coming weeks since Ms. Falque-Pierrotin has been empowered by Europe’s highest court to be at the heart of efforts to police how digital data is transferred outside of the European Union, a central aspect of many European and American businesses.
