On February 22, 2016, the Centre for Information Policy Leadership (“CIPL”), together with TRUSTe, the Information Accountability Foundation and Information Integrity Solutions, will co-host a workshop on Building a Dependable Framework for Privacy, Innovation and Cross-Border Data Flows in the Asia-Pacific Region in Lima, Peru. The workshop will be held in the margins of the upcoming meetings of the APEC Electronic Commerce Steering Group and its Data Privacy Subgroup in Lima from February 23-27, 2016.

The workshop will begin with an introductory tutorial on the APEC Cross-Border Privacy Rules (“CBPR”) and APEC Privacy Recognition for Processors (“PRP”), followed by panels on accountability-based information management programs, key issues in the ongoing implementation of the CBPR/PRP system across the APEC region, current work on creating interoperable systems for cross-border data flows between APEC and the EU, and the applicability of the APEC Privacy Framework in the context of big data and other modern information uses.

The APEC CBPR are a privacy code of conduct for information controllers developed by the 21 APEC member economies for cross-border data flows in the Asia-Pacific region. The APEC PRP is a corollary system for information processors. The workshop is designed for those interested in the APEC CBPR/PRP, as well as for general privacy and information economy stakeholders, including companies of all sizes that might seek CBPR/PRP certification, organizations that might serve as third party certification organizations, privacy enforcement authorities in the Asia-Pacific region and APEC member economies that are currently in the process of (or considering) joining the CBPR system.

The workshop will be accessible to both APEC delegates and non-APEC delegates.
