Commissioner Viviane Reding, head of European policy for Information Society and Media, reaffirmed support for an open Internet and called for new initiatives for "the protection of privacy and personal data in the online environment."

EPIC will be hosting an international conference on privacy protection in Madrid, in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Data Protection Commissioners, that will explore these topics and other related issues.
