ODPC to publish monthly newsletter

Print

As part of our communications strategy, we will start publishing a monthly newsletter at the end of October 2018 which you can sign up to here.

The first newsletter will include updates on:

  • operational progress we’ve made since the change of data protection law that came into force on 25 May 2018
  • what we know (and don’t know) about how data transfers between UK and Guernsey will be affected by Brexit
  • details of developing plans for our events programme commencing in 2019

Future newsletters will include: commentary on data protection issues; overview of specific issues; profiles of staff; profiles of data protection officers at local organisations; details of upcoming events; official guidance; success stories etc.

The newsletter forms part of our communications strategy and will be a key channel for us to fulfil our commitment to transparency around publishing regular information and statistics related to our activities and governance.

More broadly, our communications activity seeks to:

  1. Promote public awareness of risks, rules, safeguards and rights in relation to processing of personal information, especially in relation to children.
  2. Promote Guernsey’s position as a jurisdiction with excellent and innovative data protection standards which retains its ‘adequacy’ recognition from the EU
  3. Promote awareness of the legal duties placed on organisations who are controlling or processing personal information.
  4. Protect the ODPC / Data Protection Authority’s reputation by communicating in-line with our mission, vision and values.
