This years’s edition of the Computers, Privacy and Data Protection Conference (CPDP) will take place in Brussels, from May 23th – 25th. Several of CPDP LatAm’s Scientific Comittee and Multistakeholder Advisory Board members will participate in panels throughout the Conference, check our agenda below:
In Latin America, after a boost on data protection regulation in the last decade, Artificial Intelligence studies and even regulatory initiatives are increasingly being proposed. Some countries have published or are considering their own IA strategies and the Brazilian Congress is considering a Bill for an AI regulatory Framework, which has already been voted by the Chamber of Deputies. This panel will explore the main regional initiatives on AI, their overlap with data protection, their intersection with human rights law, and the specific regulatory and technological approaches that are emerging and being proposed in the region.
The importance of evidence-based policies is globally acknowledged and such evidence increasingly relies on the use of large (personal and non-personal) data sets for policy development and execution. Both public and private sector actors alike increasingly depend on data processing to provide their services. For Latin America, the innovative use of personal (and non-personal) data for policy planning plays a fundamental role to reduce inequalities and ensure no-one is left behind or cannot access the benefits of the data economy. However, some core challenges persist, including how to implement innovative, secure, and legally and technically interoperable data governance approaches and systems. This CPDP LatAm side event will explore some flagship initiatives and policies on data governance in Latin America.

The evolution of data protection regulatory frameworks in the BRICS Countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) has been quick and consistent, and is increasingly contributing to forge international standards as well as to broaden the frontiers of data protection regulation. This panel proposes do delve into new developments and common grounds among these new frameworks, considering, for example, the new Chinese data protection law, the first year of the Brazilian LGPD, the Indian data protection Bill, the Russian Internet Sovereignty debate, and the enforcement challenges in South African.
