The Day of Protection of Personal Data
On January 28, the Day of Protection of Personal Data was presented an application named "Privacy App", which enables a direct appeal of citizens through phone to the Commissioner Office for Freedom of Information and Protection of Personal Data. The realization was accomplished in cooperation with the Institute "Harry Fultz", which organized a competition with students from the third and fourth year of studies.
This project was followed by 8 students of electronics branch, who were divided in 3 groups which worked really hard in the realization of some models from December 2016.
The jury selected as winners of this competition an application realized by our pupils Damian Ndoja, Arbest Skenderaj, Merin Begeja and Landi Gjoka. The application will be available for download either in the app store as well as in the play store.
In his welcoming speech The Commissioner, Mr. Besnik Dervishi evaluated the serious commitment of the students in development of a application that was functional and comfortable in use, for any violation or misuse of personal data found.
Through this technological innovation they are encouraged to integrally exercise their rights and at the same time, the application is a concrete instrument to raise personal awareness of the individual and society towards privacy protection.
Present at the event was Ms. Nora Malaj, Deputy Minister of Education and Sports and representatives of State Minister for Public Administration and Innovation.
