C1: Online privacy education modules (New Zealand)


 

 

 

Entry by: Office of the Privacy Commissioner, New Zealand

Online privacy education modules which are free and accessible to anyone with a computer.

Why the initiative deserves to be recognised by an award?*
The online privacy training initiative has been an excellent resource for organisations seeking to upskill their employees on New Zealand’s Privacy Act and privacy in general. From the feedback received, it has been particularly helpful to health sector agencies because of the sensitivity of health information and having to have a high standard in personal information handling because of the consequences to patients of getting it wrong.

The online privacy training modules has enabled the Office of the Privacy Commissioner to remotely deliver high quality privacy training across the country. It is a model that can be adopted and applied in other data protection jurisdictions around the world.

* Non-competition entry: New Zealand has exempted itself from the competition as the ICDPPC Chair, who is judging the competition, is also the New Zealand Commissioner. This entry is for illustrative purposes only.

C2: ARCADES Project – Introducing dAta pRoteCtion AnD privacy issuEs at schoolS in the European Union (Poland)

 

 

 

 

Entry by: Inspector General for Personal Data Protection (GIODO)

ARCADES Project – Introducing dAta pRoteCtion AnD privacy issuEs at schoolS in the European Union: The Project’s aim was to introduce at schools in the EU the data protection and privacy issues in order to shape informed and responsible attitudes towards data protection and privacy among school children and teens (6-19 years old). The Publication with the unified set of teaching aids including data protection principles, lessons’ scenarios and other materials was prepared.

Why the initiative deserves to be recognised by an award?
The project’s results are likely to have long – term impact as the publication The European Handbook for Teaching Privacy and Data Protection at Schools (available in four languages: Polish, English, Slovenian and Hungarian), could be transferable to other European countries. The publication could inspire teachers to undertake similar activities on their national ground as nowadays, taking into account rapid technological development, there is a great need to educate in the field of privacy and data protection from an early stage. The project’s aim was to enable teachers to benefit from the organised seminar and to upgrade their knowledge of how to introduce data protection rules in schools and how to teach about privacy.

Entry by: Inspector General for Personal Data Protection (GIODO)

 “Your data –your concern”. Effective protection of personal data. Educational activity addressed to students and teachers: The aim of the Programme is to expand the educational offer of primary, middle, high schools and the centres for teachers’ vocational training of the content related to the protection of personal data and the right to privacy. Two-day training as well as educational materials are provided for teachers, empowering them to conduct lessons devoted to data protection and privacy issues.

Why the initiative deserves to be recognised by an award?
The Programme “Your data – Your concern” engages more than 200 educational institutions each school year. We receive positive feedback from teachers which proves that this initiative is important and that the data protection knowledge is strongly needed to be presented in schools. Therefore, the Programme supplies necessary educational information to schools and equips teachers with necessary educational materials.

Additionally, the new element of the Programme, which is developed this year – Educational Board Game – links more than 40 schools which compete with themselves.

Also this 7th edition encompasses online lectures for teachers. This is a series of live online lectures entitled “Lessons with GIODO”. The first lecture was titled “Video surveillance in schools” and was broadcasted on March 9th 2017 r.

C4: “Key to the world of the net!” (Hungary)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Entry by: National Authority for Data Protection and Freedom of Information, Hungary

Within the framework of the DPA’s children’s online rights project we have published a study promoting legally conscious internet use of children by means of fundamental rights protection measures. The study is accompanied by a DPA-initiated music video with a young Hungarian singer aiming to raise awareness among young people. All materials are also available in English.

Why the initiative deserves to be recognised by an award?
The new internet-based culture develops novel behavioural forms which need to be researched and analysed. There is a great need to educate adults dealing with teenagers as well as to raise awareness among children on the conscious and responsible way of internet usage. We truly believe that the various topics of the given study attract attention and tries to offer useful and applicable solutions for the problems and the accompanying handbook designed for children helps  them to educate themselves appropriately.  The singer preforming the music video seems to be also suitable to deliver the right messages to the youth. We have also tried to involve as many international real-life examples, cases and researches as well as best practices as we could to broaden the basis of the discussion.

We are continuing this project in 2017 now concentrating on the age group of children under 10. A similar handbook or study will be published with specific issues (e.g. online children beauty competitions, spying games etc.)
