ICDPPC Side Event - Data Protection in Humanitarian Action

The 39th International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners (“ICDPPC”), which will be held from 25 to 29 September 2017 at Kowloon Shangri-La Hotel, Hong Kong. Following collaboration with the International Committee of the Red Cross, BPH will participate in a side event that will present hte Handbook.

This panel event will explore issues surrounding the application of data protection and privacy principles in humanitarian action, to coincide with the launch of the Handbook on Data Protection in Humanitarian Action. The aim is to use the Handbook’s wide-ranging scope – encompassing the expert contributions made by the humanitarian, academic and private sectors and civil society as part of the 2016 working series organized by the International Committee of the Red Cross Data Protection Office and the Brussels Privacy Hub – as a springboard for discussion.

Drawing on the subjects and recommendations set out in the Handbook, the panellists will also consider the implications of applying new technologies – such as biometrics, big data and data analytics, cash-transfer programming, instant messaging applications, cloud-based solutions and drones – to humanitarian work.

Venue: Kowloon Shangri-La, Hong Kong
