In the remaining weeks that separate us from the final introduction of the GDPR, many italian newspapers and agencies are relaunching the institutional video created by the Privacy Authority to explain the importance of the novelties introduced by the new EU Regulation regarding personal data protection: for those who didn't see it yet, it is a self-produced video firstly published about nine months ago both on the www.garanteprivacy.it official website and shared upon the official YouTube channel, LinkedIn and Google+.
The video is part of a wider communication campaign launched by the Authority to raise awareness and inform people and to accompany public administrations and companies on the path towards the final application of the Regulation. The Authority has in fact prepared on its institutional website a section specifically dedicated to the GDPR, constantly enriched with information and documents of interest.
The following materials are already available:
- A Guide to the application of the European Regulation on the Protection of Personal Data;
- Various in-depth pages on specific topics, such as the one dedicated to the innovative figure of the Data Protection Officer (better known as DPO) and the rights on data portability;
- An enriched version of the Regulation, which indicates the relative reference considerations in correspondence with articles and paragraphs, so as to offer a broader and more reasoned reading of the forecasts introduced by the new legislation;
- A thematic data sheet dedicated to the so-called "Data protection package", the normative set of privacy in the EU that, in addition to the Regulation, also includes the Directive on the processing of personal data in the areas of prevention, contrast and repression of crimes.
For further information on the practical application of the provisions of the GDPR in the field of IT, we suggest to also read our previous posts about the ENISA publications regarding two important scenarios: Security of Personal Data Processing and Privacy and Data Protection on Mobile Devices, both available for free for download.
