Data Protection Day 2020 Initiatives

ESICEE Editor Avatar

It is a key role of ESI CEE as part of the ECHO Consortium, as well as a mission of ours, to support the cybersecurity ecosystem with practical advice and tools to support risk mitigation. This is why, as part of the activities dedicated to the Data Protection Day 2020 on 28 January, we are excited to share that to mark the occasion, the EU Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) launched an online platform to assist in the security of personal data processing.


The platform implements a risk-based approach to personal data security as a means to underpin trust and is an integral part of the work of the Agency in privacy and data protection, which focuses on analyzing technical solutions for the implementation of GDPR, privacy by design and security of personal data processing. The platform is targeted towards data controllers and their assisting contractors (data processors) to help them determine their approach when seeking to develop policies to protect personal data under their control and support organizations’ GDPR compliance.


This platform can also be proven useful to auditors and supervising authorities alike, in an effort to determine the level of preparation and analysis preceding the designation of security measures adopted by a data controller.


More information about the platform is available here.


If you are interested in data protection, please check out also other initiatives of ESI CEE, such as the cybersecurity and resilience services and trainings, organized by the CyResLab of ESI CEE, the ECHO Network and the Be@CyberPro Project.
