Rapid technological innovation and new regulatory expectations have made data protection a legal and political imperative for the humanitarian sector. But the scale, nature and novelty of the challenges it faces has left many grey areas.
We have helped the biggest humanitarian organisations in the world develop practical data protection policies and operational guidance. We’ve designed data protection frameworks for registration procedures, biometric ID systems, vulnerability assessment, cash assistance programmes, health data collection, mobile messaging apps and multistakeholder data-sharing initiatives.
We can help your organisation devise and implement policies that meet the sector-leading standards of the ICRC Handbook on Data Protection in Humanitarian Action.
