CPDP Panel on Data Protection in Humanitarian Action


On 26 January 2017, the Brussels Privacy Hub will host a panel at the 11th edition of CPDP in Brussels on Data Protection in Humanitarian Action.


The collection and processing of personally-identifiable data is central to the work of organisations in the humanitarian sector to protect and deliver essential aid to hundreds of millions of vulnerable individuals. This requires humanitarian organizations to implement data protection in their work. Compliance with personal data protection standards requires consideration of the specific scope and purpose of humanitarian activities to provide for the urgent and basic needs of individuals, and to protect their rights. The panel will consider how the imperatives of data protection and humanitarian action can both be realized on a global scale, particularly in light of new technologies.


Details such as speakers and times of this panel will be updated regularly.
