Paul Vane to take up Information Commissioner role

Posted: 30/04/2021

PaulVane_JOIC_apr21The Jersey Data Protection Authority (JDPA) has appointed Paul Vane as the next Information Commissioner, replacing the current Commissioner, Jay Fedorak, on 2 July.

Paul has been with the Jersey Office of the Information Commissioner (JOIC) since 2004 as Deputy Commissioner. He joined the then Data Protection Registrar’s office to help develop a broader understanding and compliance with the data protection law on the island.

Prior to joining the JOIC, he spent four years with the Jersey Financial Services Commission and nine years serving with the States of Jersey Police.

The JOIC has grown considerably following the revision of the local Data Protection Law in 2018, which aligned it with the European General Data Protection Regulation to address the challenges of rapidly evolving information technology. 

The Office employs 13 staff involved in investigations and public education. Paul will lead the team in the next stage of its development to meet emerging challenges in digital technology while ensuring that Jersey retains its standing on the international privacy scene.
