Mexican DPA Discusses Data Protection, International Conference
PRIVACYSeptember 12, 2011
For the first time in its 33-year history, the International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners (ICDPPC) will be held in Latin America, hosted this year by Mexico's Federal Institute for Access to Information and Data Protection (IFAI). In this Daily Dashboard exclusive, IFAI President Commissioner Jacqueline Peschard discusses the highlights of the upcoming 2011 conference, entitled "PRIVACY: The Global Age," as well as the work of the IFAI and the international data protection landscape. As Peschard puts it, in a time when data is not hemmed in by geographic boundaries, DPAs must work together across borders, which is one of the key aims of ICDPPC.
