Data Protection & Privacy within UN System Organisations

Data Protection is paramount to respect and ensure human dignity and the right to privacy, a fundamental human right enshrined in Article 12 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 17 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and many other international and regional human rights instruments. To mark Data Protection Day, IOM brought together data protection specialists from United Nations system organizations to provide insights into their privacy and data protection work. The panel discussion revolved around internal policies and rules that United Nations system organizations have in place to protect personal data as well as challenges that they face in their day-to-day work. The panelists explored the numerous risks to privacy in today's increasingly digital world in the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic, and the measures that UN system organizations are implementing to manage those risks and protect privacy.
