The toolkit consists of a specially designed test that assesses whether companies follow the requirements of the law on personal data protection when working with clients. It will help the business community:
· learn more about Ukrainian laws and international standards in the area of personal data protection;
· assess the level of readiness of a company to observe standards in personal data protection;
· improve management systems, in line with Ukrainian law and EU standards.
The toolkit is already available on the Dia.Business platform,
Organizations that properly protect the personal data of their clients and staff are less susceptible to data breaches, and as a result are less exposed to reputational and financial risks.
The toolkit is the latest product of the strategic partnership between the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine and UNDP to enhance digital solutions for democracy in Ukraine. It was developed by the Ministry of Digital Transformation with the support of the Human Rights for Ukraine (HR4U) project, implemented by UNDP in Ukraine with financial support from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark.
UNDP Ukraine has built a strong partnership with the Ministry of Digital Transformation since the ministry was formed in August 2019, supporting such initiatives as #HackCorona, which engaged IT experts, civic activists, start-ups, journalists in developing IT-projects to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic. It also contributed to the development of a Diia.Business platform for small- and medium-sized enterprises, designing mobile solutions for administrative services provision in eastern Ukraine.
During 2020, the Ministry of Digital Transformation with the UNDP support launched two series of educational videos on the platform Dia.Osvita aimed at promoting human rights: a course on personal data protection, and a course on access to public information for civil servants.
