The office of the EDPS is deeply saddened to learn of the passing away of Caspar Bowden, a tireless advocate of privacy and the freedom of the individual. The data protection community will miss his intellectual courage and commitment to the cause. We offer our sincerest condolences to Caspar's family and close friends.
The EDPS issues guidelines on specific themes in order to provide guidance for EU institutions and bodies in certain fields relevant for them, such as recruitment, processing of disciplinary data and video surveillance.
These guidelines also facilitate the prior checking by the EDPS of processing operations in the EU agencies as they served as a reference document against which agencies could measure their current practices.
