Welcome to the GRA's webpage on data protection and privacy awareness. This page provides information on the work that the GRA carries out to raise data protection awareness and privacy amongst the general public.
As well as raising awareness about the rights of individuals under data protection law, the GRA’s campaign aims to raise awareness of the risks to privacy from digital technology, and promote its responsible use, so that people have sufficient knowledge and understanding to make informed decisions about the opportunities offered by digital technology.
The GRA launched the “Control Your Privacy” awareness-raising campaign (the “CYP”) in January 2014. The CYP involves a combination of activities, which amongst other things, involves a privacy awareness school campaign for local students, creating social media campaigns and awareness-raising audio-visuals, as well as organising workshops and contributing to data protection-related events.
