You shouldn't assign the result of parse to a constant, since parse doesn't return anything.

enum ParserError: ErrorType {
  case EmptyDictionary
  case InvalidKey
}

struct Parser {
  var data: [String : String?]?

  func parse() throws {
    guard let data = data else { throw ParserError.EmptyDictionary }
    guard data.keys.contains("someKey") else { throw ParserError.InvalidKey }
  }
}

let data: [String : String?]? = ["someKey": nil]
let parser = Parser(data: data)

do {
  try parser.parse()
} catch {
   print ("error")
}
