CIPL Quarterly Reports
Message from President Bojana Bellamy
Although the start of a new decade represents a new beginning for many, the unprecedented transformation we have seen in privacy and data protection towards the end of the last decade is set to continue for many years. Amidst the changes, CIPL is continuing to work hard to develop global solutions for privacy and the responsible use of data around the globe. One of our primary focus areas continues to be the promulgation of the importance of organizational accountability, and to that end we have gathered key stakeholders to discuss accountability both in Albania during the 41st International Conference of Data Protection & Privacy Commissioners (ICDPPC), and in the US in the context of the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) recent consent decrees, which formed the basis of a CIPL white paper entitled “Organizational Accountability in Light of FTC Consent Orders”. As part of our commitment to engaging in global legislative efforts in privacy, CIPL has held a workshop with key stakeholders in New Delhi on India’s Proposed Personal Data Protection Law. We are also continuing to work on accountable AI, and held a design jam on AI explainability in December during the 52nd Asia-Pacific Privacy Authorities (APPA) Forum in the Philippines.
I encourage you to read the details of CIPL’s ongoing work in the report, and I hope to see many of you at our upcoming events.
