Elizabeth Denham announced as the new chair of the International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners (ICDPPC)
Elizabeth Denham was announced as the new chair of the International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners (ICDPPC) on 23 October 2018.
She said: "In the age of borderless data flows, there has never been a more important time for global coherence in data protection and privacy.
"My vision for the ICDPPC is to lead a ‘decade of global data protection’: a decade when data protection and privacy by design become fundamental to the digital economy, safeguarding democratic governance and ensuring protection for society’s vulnerable groups, including young people.
"The ICDPPC is a truly unique global forum, championing strong and independent authorities. Key to this is ensuring that authorities can share cutting edge policy and enforcement experience. I am keen to ensure that ICDPPC can continue to support its member authorities with experiences, strategies and best practice from around the world."
