Enabling Global Data Flows
About the Project
The free-flow of data is foundational to the modern information economy. At the same time, cross-border data transfers have raised concerns among regulators and privacy advocates, which has resulted in a trend towards data localization policies and restrictions on cross-border transfers of personal data. Thus, one of CIPL’s major work streams concerns the development and promotion of effective and accountable cross-border information management and transfer mechanisms.
As part of this work, we participate in the work on implementing the APEC Cross-Border Privacy Rules (CBPR), the APEC Recognition for Processors (PRP), the joint EU and APEC work on making the CBPR interoperable with the EU Binding Corporate Rules, as well as attend relevant APEC meetings. We frequently address cross-border transfer issues at conferences, workshops, webinars, as well as in articles and blogs. In 2015, we issued a white paper on cross-border data transfer mechanisms that should be included in any privacy regime that imposes transfer restrictions.
