A new deputy privacy commissioner has been appointed.

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Bermuda said Angie Farquharson brought a wealth of experience and expertise in the public service and data rights field, notably having previously advised PrivCom as the non-ministry comptroller and served on secondment as the deputy information commissioner.

A statement said that Ms Farquharson would strengthen the office’s capabilities in safeguarding the privacy rights of Bermuda's citizens through the office’s privacy initiatives, investigations and guidance to both public and private entities.

She will work closely with Privacy Commissioner Alexander White and the team to ensure that privacy rights are protected and that individuals have control over their personal information in the digital age.

Commissioner White said: “She has long supported our office in her previous capacity and I look forward to working together in this new role to serve the people of Bermuda and promote responsible data practices."

Ms Farquharson said: "I believe that privacy is an inherent human right and is an asset to maintaining individual dignity and respect. Together with Commissioner White and our dedicated team, we will strive to uphold the highest standards of privacy in Bermuda."

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Bermuda is an independent supervisory authority established in accordance with the Personal Information Protection Act 2016.
