The mission of the Hellenic Data Protection Authority is the protection of the personal data and the privacy of individuals in Greece, in accordance with the provisions of Law 2472/97 and 3471/2006.

The primary goal of the HDPA is the protection of citizens from the unlawful processing of their personal data and their assistance in case it is established that their rights have been violated in any sector (financial, health, insurance, education, public administration, transport, mass media, etc).

Furthermore, another goal of the HDPA is to offer support and guidance to controllers in their effort to comply with their obligations vis-?-vis the Law, while taking into account the needs of the services in the Greek society, as well as the growing use of modern digital communications and networks. As a result of the above, the HDPA focuses, among others, on the identification and solution of problems which arise from the advancements of new technologies and their applications.
