Why the ODPA?

The Office of the Data Protection Authority (ODPA) offers a variety of opportunities for talented and enthusiastic individuals seeking to further their careers.

The ODPA regulates The Data Protection (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law, 2017. This involves enabling the public to exercise their rights under the legislation as well as supporting organisations in the public, private and third sectors to comply with its requirements. The ODPA is overseen by the Data Protection Commissioner. The Commissioner is an independent public official appointed by the States of Guernsey to enforce data protection legislation in the Bailiwick.

As of 25 May 2018, the creation of the Data Protection Authority moved data protection regulation to a new, independent footing. The Authority is responsible, through the Commissioner, for the implementation and operation of the regulatory function under the Data Protection (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law, 2017.
