OECD Meetings: CSISAC to attend the 81st session of the Committee on the Digital Economy (CDEP)

April 12, 2020

The 81st session of the OECD Committee on the Digital Economy Policy (CDEP) will take place on 23 April 2020 in the OECD headquarters in Paris (France). None of the Working Parties will meet, except the Working Party on Data Governance and Privacy (DGP) to meet 21-22 April.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the meetings will take place with a reduced number of agenda items to focus on the OECD legal instruments (review of the Privacy Guidelines implementation, typology of risks for children online and a proposed recommendation ond data sharing) and the work on comparability of personal data breach notification. All remaining projects have been set to progress through written consultation, including work on country reports (Brazil and Latvia), Terrorist and Violent Extremism Content (TVEC) Reporting, Blockchain and the Digital Economy Outlook 2020, among others.

In addition to this regular meetings, the CDEP will organize two additional events: a workshop on Privacy and COVID-19 supported by the Global Privacy Assembly (15 April), and an expert consultation on data portability (17 April).

Civil Society participants are invited to engage in the ongoing work joining the CSISAC.
