Opensource Web application in Collaboration with Government Agency

The Data Protection Office has a self-assessment questionnaire ( http://dataprotection.govmu.org/English//DOCUMENTS/SELF%20ASSESSMENT%20PDF.PDF ) for compliance with Data Protection obligations. Doing such an assessment on paper and evaluating the results can be a cumbersome process.

Subramanian Moonesamy, Ishwon K. Sookun, Bundhoo Mohammad Nadim, Tejas Pagooah and Ajay Ramjatan volunteered five months of time and effort to develop a Privacy Compliance Assessment Webapp in collaboration with the Data Protection Office to make the process as user-friendly as possible. The Web app can be accessed at http://www.elandsys.com/~sm/privacy-mu/

DPO-webapp

 

It is the first time a group of volunteers in Mauritius develop an Open Source Software project in collaboration with a government agency. It was also to showcase responsive web design, i.e. the Webapp looks good on a desktop, tablet or a mobile.

The webapp does not store cookies, nor uses any other web tracking mechanism. Hence anyone who conducts an assessment using this webapp can do it anonymously, without any fear of being tracked.

The webapp is free software and can be freely distributed or modified under GNU General Public License.
