Meeting with the Cypriot Commissioner for personal data protection

We were delighted to meet with the Cypriot Commissioner for personal data protection, Mrs. Irene Loizidou Nikolaidou on 22 of May 2019 to introduce her to our project and discuss data protection under the new landscape as shaped by GDPR.

Our partnership was represented by Mr. Grassos from the Metropolitan College, Mrs. Palaonda, from Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Mrs. Daniel, Centre for Risk and Decision Sciences.

During this meeting with the Commissioner, we had the opportunity to discuss the current situation in Cyprus regarding the application of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), as well as the current compliance status. In particular, the Commissioner vividly highlighted some points, such as the training needs of DPOs, and whether there is an obligation of DPOs Certification , as well as the need to create a sustainable business oriented Occupational Profile for DPOs. In an increasingly data driven world, cybersecurity concerns us all.
