CIPL Quarterly Reports
Message from President Bojana Bellamy
As we enter into 2018, there are many exciting developments in the world of privacy and data protection. With the GDPR coming into force this year, CIPL has been hard at work to further the dialogue between industry and regulators to help ensure its consistent interpretation and implementation. We will continue to do so after the implementation date, as the law, interpretation and practice continue to evolve. We will also focus on the proposed ePrivacy Regulation which will have a wide and significant impact on all organisations. As part of our GDPR Implementation Project, CIPL has released a commissioned paper on ePrivacy, and submitted to WP29 several papers – transparency; international data transfers; profiling and automated decision-making; and breach notification. We also held a working session on Profiling, Automated Decision-Making and Cross-Border Data Transfers in Brussels last November. Globally, we have engaged with policymakers and industry leaders at the Nordic Privacy Arena in Sweden, the meetings of the Asia-Pacific Privacy Authorities (APPA) in Canada, and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) in the Philippines. I encourage you to read the details in our Quarterly Report below and please stay tuned for dates on upcoming CIPL workshops, webinars and roundtables.
