LATVIA: Data State Inspection in Latvia (Twinning)

About the Project

The overall objective of this Twinning project was to strengthen the administrative capacity of the Latvian Data State Inspection (DSI – now: Data State Inspectorate) to implement the data protection acquis (including the independence of the DSI), in particular by improving the legal base of the DSI and training activities. The training covered legal as well as technical aspects of the control of personal data processing. As a further means to improve the operational base of the DSI, manuals for the daily work of the DSI were prepared. The project also aimed at increasing the awareness on data protection within the Latvian Parliament, administration and jurisdiction as well as among the Latvian general public.
