Dear authorities, members, observers and public in general:
As part of the Executive Committee and host of the Global Privacy Assembly 2021, the plenary of INAI presents to you this website which intends to entertain all the information related to the event and our communications platform.
During the next few months, you will be getting to know more about the program, speakers, topics, planned activities, and special events for you to join in and benefit from the full event experience.
Welcome Statement from Elizabeth Denham, GPA Chair
It is my great pleasure to invite GPA Members and Observers, and the wider global data protection and privacy community, to join us for the Global Privacy Assembly 2021 in Mexico City between 18-21 October.
After such a difficult year for everyone around the world impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, it seems right that we come together again as a community to share our experiences and learn from each other. The GPA has a rich heritage, now in its 43rd year, of supporting each other by sharing expertise and practical solutions, and we will continue to do so.
At our annual conference we will not just be discussing the impact of the pandemic. For the GPA Member Authorities in particular, the conference will be an opportunity for you to shape the GPA’s next steps. We are concluding our current Strategic Plan, while setting new ambitious priorities for our Assembly to undertake on the data protection and privacy issues that will have the greatest impact across borders in the coming two years. The conference is also an opportunity to take stock, celebrate our successes together, and identify where we can support and work together.
I am delighted that our Mexican hosts at INAI will be offering such an exciting hybrid event this year, both in-person and online. I would like to thank President Commissioner Blanca Lilia Ibarra Cadena and her Board for their energetic commitment to deliver this year’s event safely and securely for us.
I look forward to seeing you in Mexico City.
