IDC Names Securiti a Worldwide Leader in Data PrivacyView
Last Updated on August 15, 2023
Enacted in 1981, Israel's Protection of Privacy Law (PPL) is one of the oldest data privacy regulations in the world. Since then, it has undergone several amendments and additions to ensure it remains applicable to modern data-related activities such as the automated processing of personal data.
The PPL provides comprehensive guidelines on the management and usage of databases to safeguard the privacy of Israelis' personal data. It also aims to ensure threats to Israelis' data privacy are minimal.
Under the PPL, Privacy Protection Authority (PPA) is the main supervisory unit established by the Minister of Justice with the approval of the Knesset's Constitution, Law, and Justice Committee. The individual who leads the PPA (Privacy Protection Authority) also holds the position of the Registrar of Databases.
Each year, no later than the 1st of April, the Registrar prepares a Protection of Privacy Report submitted by the Protection of Privacy Council to the Constitution, Law and Justice Committee of the Knesset, detailing the enforcement and supervisory activities in the preceding year with comments on how it plans to carry out its functions for the upcoming year.
