Data privacy risks and data protection: What happens when sensitive peacekeeping data leaks? How can we prevent it?
16 July, 2020 at 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM EDT
Data collection and information gathering plays a fundamental role in supporting peacekeeping operations. However, lack of proper data protection and risk management practices, especially in sensitive geopolitical contexts, can cause harm to not only identifiable individuals, but also identifiable groups of people.
This installment of the (un)data Seminar Series on Outrageous Questions will look at a hypothetical case study based on several real episodes, and will explore the practical solutions for ensuring data privacy, data protection and ethics in peacekeeping operations.
The session will encourage participants to put theory into practice and brainstorm about questions such as: How to identify risks and prevent harms in data-intensive peacekeeping operations? What determines sensitive data and how does that change with context and big data?
This is a closed seminar organized by the DPPA-DPO Information Management Unit where UN Global Pulse will present and share its experience.
