PROJECT OBJECTIVES: STRENGTHENING THE INSTITUTIONAL CAPACITIES ON SUPERVISION AND MONITORING THE PROTECTION OF PERSONAL DATA, IN BOTH THE PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SECTOR.

The main objective of the Twinning Project is to strengthen the institutional capacities of the Information and Data Protection Commissioner of Albania on supervision and monitoring the protection of personal data in both the public and private sector.

The specific aim is to support the Information and Data Protection Commissioner of Albania in further aligning the national legislation and specifically the Law No. 9887/2008 “On the Protection of Personal Data”, as amended, with Union acquis in the field of protection of personal data, as well as further developing administrative capacity of the Albanian institutions to enforce the relevant Union acquis.

The expected results of the Project are to:

  • Align the national legislation with the GDPR and the Enforcement Directive;
  • Capacity building for enforcement of the new Data Protection legal framework;
  • Awareness-raising with controllers and processors in order to ensure that they comply with the new Data Protection Law.
