CIPL Quarterly Reports
Message from President Bojana Bellamy
As part of our work on US privacy, CIPL held a roundtable on organizational accountability with US Senate staff members, and released both a Q&A paper on organizational accountability in data protection, along with a white paper on organizational accountability’s existence in US regulatory compliance and its relevance for a US Federal privacy law. We have also recently launched a project asking CIPL member companies with mature and resilient privacy management programs to map their privacy programs to CIPL’s accountability framework. Our goal in launching this project is to further promote accountability as an essential prerequisite of the modern digital economy and build global consensus between industry and regulators on the meaning and importance of the concept of organizational accountability.
We are also continuing to engage with regulators around the globe on other privacy topics. We have organized two joint events with the Singapore Personal Data Protection Commission (PDPC) on Cross-Border Privacy Rules and AI, collaborated with the UK Information Commissioner’s Office on their AI Auditing Framework, and gathered private and public sector stakeholders to discuss Brazil’s new data protection law in Brasilia.
I encourage you to read the details of CIPL’s ongoing work below, and I look forward to the next opportunity to see you all in person.
