People´s personal data are being processed every second – at work, in their relations with public authorities, in the health field, when they buy goods or services, travel or surf the internet.
This year, January 28 marks the 41st anniversary of Convention 108, which was opened for signature on 28 January 1981, and the 16th European Data Protection Day. It is a very special day, not only for the Council of Europe, but for the entire global Data Protection community, and above all, for each and every individual protected by this essential right.
The Republic of Moldova marks this event together with all European states. Although the field of personal data protection is a relatively new one for the society of the Republic of Moldova, in the last decade we have managed to make great steps in ensuring respect for the right to privacy, as well as regarding our efforts to comply with European standards in the field of personal data protection.
Our role as the National Data Protection Authority is becoming increasingly important and the annual celebration of this day is an opportunity to bring to the attention of the general public the importance of respecting the principles of personal data processing, the right to privacy and the right to personal data protection, enshrined as fundamental rights.
The team of the National Centre for Personal Data Protection wishes you an
EXCELLENT DATA PROTECTION DAY!
