The Jersey Data Protection Authority invites you to join us in the Bailiwick of Jersey, Channel Islands, for the 46th Global Privacy Assembly Annual Meeting.
The Global Privacy Assembly Annual Meeting agenda will include a Welcome Reception on Monday 28 October 2024, hosted in the unique setting of the Freedom Centre, St. Helier. This will lead into two consecutive days of Open Conference Sessions held at the prestigious Royal Jersey Showground in the parish of Trinity. These will be concluded by a Gala Dinner and Awards Night and then lead into the two half day Closed Conference Sessions held at the Radisson Blu Hotel in the heart of St. Helier.
The Power of i is the overarching theme for the 2024 Annual Meeting. It highlights the significance of the eight themes, which are intrinsically linked to encompass the harms, values, and enrichment of our human lives. The meeting will establish and explore how we can respect and balance the power of information with the need for citizens across the world to have power, control, and dignity over their personal information.
The discussions will challenge and question who controls this power, for what purpose, and for whom. They will also examine the effectiveness of current regulatory models, questioning whether they are still fit for purpose in a rapidly changing world. The conference aims to create a roadmap for the future, both short-term and long-term, to improve individuals’ ability to self-manage their data, achieve greater equity in data sharing, and foster better behaviours and culture around the use of personal data.
