Data Protection Day is celebrated globally, each year on 28 January. On this date, national data protection bodies and other sectors carry out activities to raise awareness about the rights to personal data protection and privacy. These may include campaigns targeting the general public, educational projects for teachers and students and open doors at data protection agencies and conferences.
This year, the Information Commissioner has published material and launched a campaign that focuses on the data protection rights of individuals, which includes –
- A Guidance Note on “The Rights of Individuals under the Gibraltar GDPR”
- A set of infographics which emphasise the main points relating to the data protection rights of individuals; and
- A collection of short videos that further explain the rights of individuals. These videos have been uploaded to the GRA’s YouTube channel.
With this campaign, the Information Commissioner aims to raise awareness of privacy and data protection, and in particular, the rights that individuals have in relation to their personal data.
