Workshop: Data Protection within International Organizations

The EDPS and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) are co-organising the 6th edition of the Data Protection Workshop within International Organizations, which will take place on 11–12 May at the IOM in Geneva.

This workshop, initiated by the EDPS over ten years ago, aims at bringing together International Organisations to:

  • Share experience and best practice in the field of data protection and analyse its impact as part of good governance within International Organisations;
  • Summarise the most recent regulatory developments at international level in the area of privacy and data protection and analyse the potential implications of such developments for International Organisations;
  • Analyse the state of play of data protection within International Organisations;
  • Discuss the progress made since the last workshop.

Topics which will be covered at this year's workshop include cloud computing, processing of health data, the role of the Data Protection Officer, and data transfers to International Organisations under the GDPR.
