To celebrate Data Protection Day 2019, the Information Commissioner’s office released a short video on the topic of privacy and data protection. The video forms part of the Information Commissioner’s “Control Your Privacy” campaign, the aim of which is to provide different sectors of the community with information about privacy rights.
The video links the emergence of new technologies that so greatly benefit the data-driven world we live in, to the importance of protecting your personal data and exercising your individual privacy rights. It helps raise awareness of the risks to privacy from new technologies and prompts viewers to think about the personal information they publish. It also highlights elements of the GDPR and how they affect individuals and their rights.
The Information Commissioner invites the public to view the video here.
