While all personal data will be secure, our journalistic work may fall under GDPR Article 85: Freedom of expression and information.
This provision requires Member States to introduce exemptions to the GDPR where necessary to "reconcile the right to the protection of personal data…with the right to freedom of expression and information." Although this Article is wider in scope than Article 9 of the Data Protection Directive, Article 85(2) makes specific provision for processing carried out for journalistic purposes, or for the purposes of academic, artistic or literary expression. Member States will be required to notify the Commission on how they have implemented this requirement and of any changes to such laws.
