It is my pleasure, on behalf of the Jersey Data Protection Authority (JDPA) to present to the Minister and the members of the States Assembly our Annual Report for 2020. This fulfils our statutory obligation under Article 44 of the Data Protection Authority (Jersey) Law 2018.
This report covers an extraordinary year. We had just begun to implement our new registration model when the Covid-19 pandemic presented a wide range of further challenges to us all. The Voting Members of the JDPA are grateful to the employees of the Jersey Office of the Information Commissioner (JOIC) for continuing to deliver exemplary service to the people of Jersey, despite a myriad of administrative and operational challenges, as well as a further increase in workload.
Jacob Kohnstamm, Chairman.
