Under the theme: “How accountable organizations do data governance” a training session was provided today for the staff of the Commissioner’s Office by Mr. Martin Abrams, Executive Director and Chief Strategist of the Information Accountability Foundation (IAF) and Mr. Scott Taylor, IAF’s Board Chairman as well as Vice President Compliance, Privacy, Big Data and Global Services at Merck.

The American experts introduced attendees with some advanced practices vis-à-vis accountability, both theoretically and practically. A fair and transparent data processing may be achieved only if the highest standards have been adopted at the design phase as well as along the implementation and monitoring stages.
