Personal data: The CMR adheres to the CNDP “Data Tika” program


The National Commission for the Control of the Protection of Personal Data (CNDP) and the Moroccan Pension Fund (CMR) signed, Thursday in Rabat, a partnership agreement for membership in the “Data Tika” program.

Initialed by the president of the CNDP, Omar Seghrouchni, and the director of the CMR, Lotfi Boujendar, this agreement formalizes the adhesion of the CMR to the “Data Tika” program set up by the CNDP on July 9, 2020, with the aim to proactively protect Moroccan citizens within the digital ecosystem and to strengthen measures to protect personal data.

This partnership between the two institutions will result in particular in the organization of training sessions on the protection of personal data and access to the online application for dematerialization of notifications to the CNDP as well as support for the CMR in bringing its internal personal data processing processes into compliance and with its increasingly digitalized ecosystem. In a statement to MAP, Mr. Seghrouchni indicated that the “Data Tika” agreement covers three aspects, of which “the first concerns the compliance of the partner in all its declarations, its requests for prior authorization and its processing of data to personal character, the second relates to taking into account what is to come with the partner, while the third part concerns a transversal reading of what is being treated with this partner. Mr. Seghrouchni also indicated that this partnership with an important institution in terms of retirement “will allow us to better understand the needs expected by this sector and to comply with these requests”. For his part, Mr. Boujendar indicated that the CMR manages the data of more than 2 million affiliates, hence the importance, he said, of ensuring total compliance in the management of this data.

With this in mind, he continued, the CMR has strengthened its partnership ties through the signing of this agreement, adding that “we intend to take advantage of the experience and expertise of this institution to help us to better frame this question of respect for personal data.”

He also noted that the choice of the CMR is to be an institution open to the needs of its affiliates, through the multiplication of communication channels, which implies objectives to be achieved while respecting a certain number of constraints, putting forward the scope of the signed partnership which will contribute to achieving this balance between objectives and constraints, through the support and advice of the CNDP. Created under Law No. 09-08 of February 18, 2009 relating to the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data, the CNDP is responsible for verifying that the processing of personal data is lawful and legal. and that they do not infringe on privacy, fundamental human rights and freedoms. The CMR has been involved since 1930 in serving the Moroccan public sector pension by ensuring the administration and management of the reserve funds of several schemes.
