Oxford Internet Institute presents ‘A new Bretton Woods for Data’. A conversation with Elizabeth Denham CBE, UK Information Commissioner and Global Privacy Assembly chair.

Here is the paradox: as data protection laws increasingly align towards a high standard, data protectionism is on the rise too.
Ever more countries are establishing stricter rules on the cross-border transfer of personal information, in the name of digital sovereignty, security or business growth.

Will this be the death of data globalisation? In many ways, international data flows have been an outstanding driver for trade, democracy, and human rights too – but how can we square this with national security arguments?

Join us for this conversation with Elizabeth Denham to help unlock one of the most interesting issues of our time – the politics and geopolitics of data, and why the world needs a new Bretton Woods for data.

This event will be hosted by Ivana Bartoletti, Visiting Policy Fellow at the Oxford Internet Institute, and Technical Director, Privacy, Deloitte.
