Data Protection Chairman Echos Securing Internet Information

Bahamas TourismEchoing the inevitable for securing requisite boundaries on the information highway, the Ministry of Finance Data Protection Unit is advocating training law enforcement officers on ways to detect viral information theft to protect the personal information of Bahamians online.


Data Protection Commissioner, Mrs. Sharmie Farrington Austin, welcomed the national training symposium participants to the Sheraton Ballroom, Oct. 31, 2013, under the theme “Data Protection in a twenty-first century world.”


“The theme emphasises the fact that data protection is a global issue.  We are in the age of information and the protection of data is vitally important.  The Bahamas as a jurisdiction cannot afford to place its face in the proverbial sand and ignore this worldwide phenomenon,” said Mrs. Austin.


“Indeed, with the proposed Freedom of Information Act, the establishment of a credit bureau of The Bahamas, and other imminent initiatives, it is necessary that our office takes a proactive role in providing training for our citizens.”


The commissioner said the symposium serves as an icebreaker for the country’s hope in becoming the top regional symposium for data protection.


“I am very pleased to partner with the Cyber Crime Division of the Royal Bahamas Police Force in this endeavour,” she said.


Mrs. Austin said speakers and participants will come from many data intensive industries.
