Registration is just the start, read on to find out what your legal obligations are when working with people's data. 
After you've completed the annual box-ticking exercise of reviewing and renewing your registration with us, it's a good opportunity to review your legal obligations under The Data Protection (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law, 2017 - as they are what you need to focus on 365 days a year to ensure that you are treating people's data well. Meeting these duties benefits you directly as it helps build trust and confidence with your customers, service users, staff and any other people whose data you use. And ultimately it helps avoid data harms that can damage people’s lives, careers, and reputations.

Below are some steps to take: 
  1. Review your legal obligations here
  2. Read 'The Feel-Good Guide to Data Protection' for an easy introduction. 
  3. Discover 'Project Bijou' - our social initiative to encourage everyone to share stories, knowledge and experiences related to ethical data use, in a way that benefits everyone.
