Data protection in Diak
Data protection refers to the processing of personal data in a careful manner. Data protection concerns guidelines on best practices for the processing of personal data, and not data security per se. If personal data are collected, they must be held and processed with due care.
Diak will implement the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as of 25 May 2018. The regulation applies to data that directly or indirectly identifies a person. Special attention must be paid to the storage and confidentiality of sensitive data. Sensitive data include, for example, health-related information and information about religious, political or sexual orientation.
Data protection officer
According to the GDPR, the higher education institution must have a named data protection officer. The data protection officer is responsible for monitoring the legality of the processing of personal data and assists the higher education institution in its tasks relating to data protection.
The data protection officer serves as a contact with the oversight authority and supports staff and data subjects in questions relating to the processing of personal data.
