A new Bretton Woods for Data | Oxford Internet Institute

September 9 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

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

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?
