Happy International Data Protection Day from the Global Privacy Assembly!
Elizabeth Denham CBE, Chair of GPA and UK Information Commissioner, is speaking by video today at the International Data Protection Day 2020 event hosted by the National Institute of Transparency, Access to Information and Protection of Personal Data (INAI) in Mexico City.
In her speech, Ms Denham says that the data protection world has perhaps never been a more challenging one. But that our international partnerships can bring solutions, with the GPA moving towards stronger regulatory co-operation, paving the way not only to sharing best practice but potentially sharing lines of enquiry – view the GPA Strategic Plan 2019-2021.
Ms Denham also says that one of the emerging areas of data protection right now is considering the human values that underpin privacy. And it’s welcome that our GPA conference in Mexico City later this year will take this emphasis on human values as a starting point for its theme, of ‘Privacy and Data Protection: A human-centric approach’.
