Collaboration with GDPR & Channel Islands Data Protection Experts

Emma Martins

Emma’s academic background is in social science and her career started in public service working as a civilian manager for the States of Jersey Police in the 1990’s. The role had data protection duties as part of its remit and was her introduction to this field of work. She was employed at the Data Protection Office as Deputy Registrar in 2001. When the Commissioner retired in 2005, Emma was successful in her application for the role. In 2012 the Channel Islands joined forces to establish a pan-Island data protection presence and Emma managed the regulatory oversight of both Jersey and the Bailiwick of Guernsey. This role also extended to oversight of the implemented Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 in Jersey creating the role of Information Commissioner.

Since 2016 Emma has been working closely with both Governments on the implementation plans for the local legislation equivalent to GDPR which is due for implementation in May 2018. As of February 2018, Emma took on the role as Data Protection Commissioner for the Bailiwick of Guernsey.

"The introduction of GDPR will transform the way businesses are able to handle personal data; we are on the verge of huge change in data regulation..."

"I cannot over emphasise the importance of being prepared for this legislation. I particularly want to stress this to the islands' small to medium sized business communities who may not have access to the legal or compliance expertise and resources available to larger organisations. The new regulations are certainly going to up the game in terms of compliance obligations and there is much greater accountability for data controllers and processors. Wherever personal data is involved, whether that is staff, client or any other information relating to individuals, data protection compliance will have to be considered and built in at the beginning of the process and to a more significant and demonstrable degree."
