"eduGIODO" information and training portal – a new source of information on personal data protection

The eduGIODO e-learning platform carried on by the Inspector General for Personal Data Protection was developed in 2008 as part of an EU project. The initiative to create an online educational service resulted from permanent striving for promotion of personal data protection issues and enhancement of access to knowledge in this regard for each interested party.

The platform addressed to natural persons and institutions processing personal data is supposed to get them acquainted with these issues and to assist them in applying the provisions on personal data protection. It offers training courses in the form of interactive websites including national and Community legislation as well as reports, analyses and research projects connected with the implementation of the law on personal data protection. It is made up of two modules: informational one - containing information comprising among others review of national and Community legislation related to personal data protection, and training module - containing 3 specialised e-learning courses addressed to three groups of beneficiaries, i.e. data controllers, data processors and data subjects.

A long-lasting effect for the recipients will be knowledge gained on the following areas of law related to personal data protection: the basic definitions concerning personal data protection, the principles of personal data processing, the data subject's rights, data management, disclosure of data, processing of personal data, in the context of various EU policy areas (telecommunications, information society, public healthcare, human resources management and consumer rights protection, Schengen acquis) and their interpretation by EU institutions, as well as practice related to their application in EU states.

In this way, the project will contribute to enhancing knowledge of Polish and UE legal provisions, including issues regarding personal data protection, and raising awareness level and skills as regards application of these provisions among selected target groups.

An integral element disseminating knowledge on eduGIODO platform was organisation of two conferences, in Warsaw and in Gdansk, and preparation of promotional and informational materials addressed to each potential user of the educational portal. In the course of these activities, everybody had a chance to get acquainted with the platform and discuss the issues of privacy protection in the contemporary world.

You are invited to check out the new valuable source of information on personal data protection at http://edugiodo.giodo.gov.pl/ (available in Polish).
