International DPAs Meet on Enforcement
PRIVACY LAWMay 24, 2012
A dozen privacy enforcement authorities from around the world met at a two-day event in Montreal last week to explore ways to cooperate on enforcement. In this exclusive for The Privacy Advisor, Sophie Paluck-Bastien reports on the efforts of the temporary working group formed under the Resolution on Privacy Enforcement Co-ordination at the International Level adopted at the 33rd International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners last year. "The group agreed that there is nothing to be gained from a dozen authorities investigating the same incident in silos and everything to be gained from them using their limited resources in a concerted fashion," Paluck-Bastien writes.
