Announcement by the Commissioner for Personal Data Protection

28 December, 2018

On the 29th of November 2018, the Commissioner for Personal Data Protection in Cyprus, made an official announcement, noting the following:

A. Organisations have proceeded to the appointment of Data Protection Officers (DPOs”) but they neglected to educate them or inform them regarding their duties and responsibilities;

B. Public authorities and organisations have not completed the relevant registry of Article 30 of GDPR.

Taking the above into consideration, the Commissioner has announced the commencement of a campaign targeting both public and private organisations. The aim is to verify that every organisation, obliged by the relevant clauses, has appointed a DPO and that the completed Registry is available in both hard copy and electronic format.
