why join us?
The Jersey Data Protection Association has a number of clear objectives:
To provide a networking forum for Jersey’s data protection community: bringing together Data Protection Officers, those tasked with Data Protection and those with a broader interest or responsibility in data protection to discuss and collate trends, challenges and themes which can be fed back anonymously into Government and the Information Commissioner on behalf of members.
To maintain dialogue with the Jersey Office of the Information Commissioner (JOIC) and the Government of Jersey to understand upcoming changes in regulation and legislation which may impact the membership, in order to support and when necessary challenge the suggested changes for the benefit of our membership.
To raise awareness of the importance of compliance with the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018, for all business sizes and sectors. The J.DPA will achieve this through advertised events, talks, webcasts and news updates to our members.
To raise awareness of Individuals Rights and how they should access those rights. The J.DPA will achieve this with advertised events, talks and updates provided to the local media to the residents of Jersey.
To provide regular updates to members on the latest news and developments in Regulation, Legislation and Enforcement actions from the European Union, the United Kingdom and any global changes impacting data protection and date security.
