At the event to commemorate the day, guidelines were presented that will answer questions about surveillance and respect for the right to privacy
On 28 January, in commemoration of the European Data Protection Day, an event was held in Kiev to present a series of guidelines on the protection of personal data when using video surveillance systems in public places. The guides are made by experts from the EU4DigitalUA project, with the technical support of the Spanish Data Protection Agency.
The guidelines are aimed at compliance with the legislation on the protection of personal data during the installation of video surveillance systems in public places. These guides will serve to help holders of personal data to comply with national and international standards regarding the protection of personal data in video surveillance systems.
Members of the Ministries of the Interior, Defence, Digital Transformation, Security Services, associations and representatives of civil society attended the event, which could also be followed by streaming. In fact, the European Commission’s roadmap for the integration of drones in civil aerospace was presented electronically by the Spanish Data Protection Agency coordinator of technological evaluation and studies, Andrés Calvo Medina. The event was broadcast on the official channel of the Ombudsman in Ukraine, which has the technical support of the EU4Digital project, financed by the European Union , in which the FIIAPP works on institutional strengthening, communication and the protection of data.
On 28 January 1981, the European Commission, the Council of Europe and the Data Protection authorities of the member states of the European Union proclaimed 28 January as European Data Protection Day to highlight the importance of user privacy and data protection, and to commemorate the signing of the European Council’s Convention 108 for the protection of personal data.
