On the16th and 17th November 2017 in Vancouver, Canada, the “48th Asia Pacific Privacy Authorities (APPA) Forum” was co-hosted by the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC-Canada) and the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner for British Columbia (OIPC-BC).
This event had the purpose of giving APPA members and invited guests the opportunity to share their insights and perspectives on the theme of Partnering for Research; they discussed global privacy trends, they exchanged domestic experiences, and sought opportunities for joint regulatory guidance and enforcement activities across the Asia Pacific Region.
On behalf of the Superintendence of Industry and Commerce, Ms. María Claudia Caviedes attended the event in her capacity as Deputy Superintendent for Data Protection. The participation of Ms. Caviedes was very important as she was invited to share the Colombian experience in relation to privacy protection. She also participated as speaker in the discussions regarding the transfer of information on emerging technologies and trends and changes in the regulation of regulatory policies.
The Forum was attended by a total of fourteen (14) APPA member authorities.
