ICO continues to invest in international cooperation
Laura Linkomies reports from the 41st International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners (ICDPPC) which was held in Albania 21-24 October.
The ICO continues to play a key part in the international arena despite Brexit and the uncertainty over its role with EU counterparts. Closing the proceedings of the 41st International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners in Albania, the UK’s Information Commissioner, Elizabeth Denham, said that the conference now gathers together 120 jurisdictions. Decisions taken about the future of the conference include year-round cooperation, changing its name to Global Privacy Assembly, and opening up to engage more with external stakeholders, in particular civil society, in a new reference panel to be formed in 2020.
