The primary function of the Data Protection & Information Security Working Group is to provide members of Compliance Institute with a forum for discussion on Data Protection compliance issues and an outlet to share views on various processes. The Group consists of members with practical experience of Data Protection practice and regulation in various types of firms and it focuses on providing members with the latest insights on current and pending Data Protection issues. It also seeks to identify issues which may impact on Compliance Institute members in their day to day functions and their education needs which issues will be escalated to the Technical Committee.
One of the primary purposes of Compliance Institute is to consult with regulators on behalf of members where we think our institute has constructive input to contribute. The institute maintains regular contact with the Data Protection Commission.
