International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners is Now the Global Privacy Assembly; New Policy Strategy Published

From the Launch Announcement:

Today the International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners has launched a new logo and a new name: Global Privacy Assembly (GPA).

Building on our 40-year history, the new logo and name represent the evolution of the conference and the current work to modernise it, including a new policy strategy which sets out a clear vision for the organisation.

Elizabeth Denham, GPA Chair and UK Information Commissioner, said: “Our new name feels hugely significant. Data protection and privacy is now too great an issue for this community to only have a role once a year. That’s why we took a step forward at last month’s conference in Tirana, when we agreed a set of strategic priorities that strengthen the group’s position as an effective and influential international forum. The new name reflects a group that supports one another year round, sharing knowledge and building stronger cooperation.”
