About the Conference
The ICDPPC was first convened in 1979 and has been the annual premier global forum for data protection authorities for over three decades. The ICDPPC currently comprises over 110 accredited member authorities from more than 70 countries and regions. Every year the ICDPPC brings together around 600 professionals and representatives from the data protection authorities and the related trades and industries of every continent.
The programme of ICDPPC usually consists of a closed session and an open session. The closed session is for its accredited members and observers, and the open session is attended by all in the data protection community including data users/controllers, privacy related enterprises, business entities, professionals and academia.
ICDPPC consists of a 5 member governance body. The Executive Committee comprises an elected Chair, two elected members, and, in an ex-officio capacity, the hosts of the previous and next conferences.
The Conference seeks to provide leadership at international level in data protection and privacy.
