Digital Jersey Establishes Its First Data Trust And Launches A Pilot Project


Are you curious about how data trusts work? Digital Jersey has taken the lead in exploring this concept with the first data trust under Jersey Trust Law. In this blog post, you’ll learn about how this trust works, its goals, and the collaboration that made it possible. So, buckle up and let’s dive into the amazing world of data trusts!

First, let’s look at how Digital Jersey’s data trust works. Jersey cyclists will use custom bike light sensors to capture data, which will then be stored in the trust. This data will be used to assess whether or not it is possible to employ a trust structure to investigate the concept of data stewardship. Additionally, the data will produce relevant data and intelligence about safe cycling. To make this possible, the Jersey Office of the Information Commissioner (JOIC) and Jersey’s financial sector have collaborated on the pilot project. Appleby and JTC Law advised on the trust’s setup and local fiduciary firms ICECAP and JTC administered the trust’s data. Calligo, Defence Logic, and PropelFwd have all contributed to IT and technical support.

Now, let’s look at the goals of the pilot project. The major goal is to assess whether or not it is possible to employ a trust structure to investigate the concept of data stewardship. Additionally, the data will produce relevant data and intelligence about safe cycling. The next step for Digital Jersey is to find interested cyclists to join the team. Regius Professor of Computer Science and Digital Jersey Non-Executive Director, Dame Wendy Hall, believes this project brings together two of Jersey’s great strengths – digital innovation and its experience in trust administration.

Finally, let’s look at how this trust will protect personal data. The idea is to store personal data in a trust so that it can be protected, controlled, and shared in line with the terms of the trust, all while adhering to the strict regulations governing personal data handling. The trust will also help ensure that data is managed responsibly and in line with ethical principles.
