On Tuesday, 23 October, AmCham EU and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce co-hosted an event on international best practices on privacy in the margins of the 40th International Conference of Privacy and Data Protection Commissioners (ICDPPC).

Featuring around 50 participants and an opening keynote by US FTC Commissioner Noah Philips, the event focused on interoperability between different privacy models.  Despite diverging approaches across countries, notably between the EU and the US, speakers stressed the need to outline some common privacy principles to ensure interoperable frameworks, as more and more countries define their respective privacy regimes.
