A report from a roundtable organised by the Internet Society at the WSIS Forum on 16 May 2012 at Geneva, Switzerland.
The WSIS Forum 2012 offered a timely opportunity to bring together insights and ideas from various initiatives presently underway across the world to review, modernise and/or develop new approaches to privacy to keep pace with the evolving global data environment. Building on that experience sharing, this roundtable explored potential gaps in current frameworks, issues surrounding interoperability, and some possible ways forward.
