The Swedish Data Protection Authority Publishes its Supervisory Plan for 2019–2020

The Swedish Data Protection Authority has published its supervisory plan for 2019–2020 that will focus on three areas: prioritized legal areas, specific businesses and organizations, and new technological advances.

In addition, the Swedish DPA will look into processing of personal data, using consent as the legal basis for processing. Consent will focus on voluntariness, information, clarity and scope.

The Supervisory Plan will also focus on sectors where sensitive personal data or children’s personal data are processed, including the healthcare sector, schools or educational institutions, money transmission service providers, the retail sector and the debt collection service sector.
