Study on international transfer of personal data wins international privacy award

Luca Belli, the coordinator of Fundação Getulio Vargas’ Center for Technology and Society (CTS) and a professor at the FGV Rio de Janeiro Law School, won a prize at the 14th Annual Privacy Papers for Policymakers Awards, held by the Future Privacy Forum, which is based in Washington, D.C. 

Belli wrote his prize-winning paper, titled “Towards a Latin American Model of Adequacy for the International Transfer of Personal Data,” in collaboration with an international team of specialists, composed of Ana Brian Nougrères, a professor at the University of Montevideo and United Nations Special Rapporteur on Privacy; Pablo Palazzi, a professor and director of the Center for Technology and Society (CETyS) at the University of San Andrés in Argentina; Jonathan Mendoza Iserte, data protection secretary at Mexico’s National Institute for Transparency, Access to Information and Protection of Personal Data (INAI); and Nelson Remolina, director of the Internet, e-Commerce, Telecommunications and Computer Science Study Group (GECTI) at the University of the Andes Law School in Colombia.

The Future Privacy Forum’s annual awards scheme recognizes the academic quality of privacy and data protection research undertaken by authors in the United States and other countries that is relevant to policymakers in the U.S. Congress, federal agencies and international data protection authorities. A committee made up of data protection experts, lawyers, academics and industry professionals selected this and eight other articles for the strength of their arguments and proposals for the creation of public policies.

“Towards a Latin American Model of Adequacy for the International Transfer of Personal Data” proposes rethinking the way a country is traditionally assessed in order to be classified as having an adequate level of data protection. In addition, it proposes other options for carrying out international transfers of personal data, so that they not only guarantee respect for the rights of the people whose information is exported or sent to other countries, but are more agile and efficient in terms of the needs of international trade, the digital economy, innovation, technological development and the prevalence of general interests, among other issues.

In the document, published in Spanish and presented for the first time at the CPDP LatAm Conference, the researchers also analyze the phenomenon of international data collection and propose solutions to guarantee the rights of data owners when their information is collected in other countries.
