APEC Cross-Border Data Privacy Initiative (2007)

CIPPIC is participating in an effort by APEC economies to develop effective mechanisms for protecting data as it flows between countries. In September 2007, Philippa Lawson spoke at the Vancouver APEC Data Privacy Seminar on "Stakeholder Roles in the APEC Pathfinder and Beyond". In February 2008, she spoke at another APEC Data Privacy Seminar, on "Outsourcing and Data Privacy: A Citizen/Consumer Perspective", and participated in follow-up workshops along with colleagues from Privacy International and EPIC. Their report on the sessions can be accessed here.
