CBC spy cams not violating personal data laws

There are 80 cameras installed inside and outside the Central Bank (CBC) but no laws were broken, the personal data commissioner said on Thursday after investigating staff complaints.

“There is no question of irregularities but recommendations were made to place signs and inform personnel,” Yiannis Danilides said.

No cameras were found in the offices of CBC staff, the commissioner said.

Eighty cameras were counted inside and outside the building – four were recently installed, one each on the four floors, focusing on the lifts.

Two cameras covered the tellers at the ground floor while the rest were installed at entrances, exits, high security areas and the exterior.

Danilides said the CBC had informed his office in the past that it was planning to install 100 security cameras and there was no need to notify them again when the four were placed recently.

However, Danilides said, it was necessary to inform the staff when cameras were being installed afterwards.

An insufficient number of warning signs was detected however, and the commissioner told the CBC to install signs that will be clearly visible to people before they access an area covered by a security camera.
