Privacy forum to discuss state of data protection in the Philippines

A forum on privacy will be held by the Ateneo de Manila University, through its University Data Protection Office (UDPO), in partnership with the Foundation for Media Alternatives (FMA).

According to a recent report, the occasion will offer participants the unique opportunity to discuss extensively the state of privacy and data protection in the Philippines.

It hopes to accomplish this by lending a multi-stakeholder lens to the analysis of current issues; by recommending effective solutions; and by allowing the sharing of best practices that may be implemented in the local setting.

Entitled, “PANOPTICON: Privacy and ICT Conference”, the event will gather participants from the government, the private sector, and the civil society, including media and the academe.

With representations from different sectors, it will ensure a rich and inclusive discussion on privacy and other related topics.

There are five featured panels who will take on key topics corresponding to the theme, “Privacy advocacy in a data-driven society”.

The following topics will be discussed during the forum:

  1. Privacy and Data: Protection: Regional Perspectives
  2. Data Protection in the Classroom
  3. Internet Intermediaries, Privacy, and a Borderless World
  4. Data-Driven Societies and Individual Right to Privacy
  5. The Privacy Professional

The roster of distinguished speakers will be led by the Deputy Privacy Commissioner, who will be providing the keynote address.

Various professionals in the field of human rights, data protection, and information and communications technology (ICT) will be joining and sharing their expertise in the discussion.

The privacy forum will be held on 18 January 2019, at the Leong Hall Auditorium of the University’s campus in Loyola Heights.
