Short description of D5.3: Privacy and data security framework

This basic Data Protection Impact Assessment (“DPIA”) has been developed by Liane Colonna1 to examine the privacy issues associated with collecting, handling and sharing information within the context of the Skills-Match system. Skills Match involves the creation of a European-wide assessment and learning system, which will help users to adapt their skill assets to the demands of labor market focusing on the support of Non-Cognitive Skills (NC). In particular, the system seeks to integrate and improve the development of NC skills by enabling the assessment and evaluation of such skills and recommending users’ actions for bridging the gap between their skills profile and the one recommended for their target occupations.

The central purpose of this basic DPIA is to examine the data-protection issues associated with collecting and sharing personal data about individuals within the Skills Match system. In particular, the DPIA seeks to identify the project’s privacy impacts and to develop an appreciation of those impacts from the perspectives of all relevant stakeholders. It further seeks to identify ways in which negative impacts on privacy can be avoided at an early outset of the system’s development in accordance with the “privacy by design” principle set forth in the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). Where negative impacts on privacy are found to be unavoidable, it seeks to ensure that justifications for the processing of personal data are made as clearly and transparently as possible.
