CIPL Quarterly Reports
Message from President Bojana Bellamy
With the implementation of the GDPR, we have entered a new data protection regime, and we at CIPL have been continuing to inform and build bridges between different stakeholders, to help develop consistent and forward thinking interpretations of the new obligations and to promote accountability and best practices in implementing the new requirements. To assist with GDPR implementation efforts, CIPL continues to engage with public and private sector stakeholders, and to that end we have submitted a response to the UK ICO’s GDPR DPIA Guidance, and held a special GDPR session with the New York Privacy Officers Forum in New York City. Outside of the GDPR, we have also released a study on the proposed ePrivacy Regulation prepared by Normally, a UK design studio, and delved further into our new project on Accountable Artificial Intelligence and Data Protection. CIPL firmly believes that AI is the next frontier for global privacy discussions, and we’ve been hard at work to provide a more nuanced and detailed understanding of the opportunities presented by AI, potential misalignment with data protection laws and practical ways to address these issues through the lens of organisational accountability.
Lastly, I’d like to extend a special welcome to Ramy Houssaini, Chief Cyber and Technology Risk Officer and Group DPO at BNP Paribas, who has joined CIPL membership at the advisory level. As an advisory level member, Ramy and his team will help advise CIPL across all our global initiatives and work streams.
I encourage you to read the details of CIPL’s ongoing work below, and I look forward to seeing many of you in the coming months.
