Phase II.5 (2014)

This phase focused on addressing accountability in private-sector organizations when providing personal data to the government and in national security and law enforcement agencies when seeking such data from the private sector. Our goal was to identify specific steps to help enhance responsible stewardship of personal data in both public and private sectors through frank, constructive dialogue among senior government officials, business leaders, academic researchers, and privacy and civil liberties advocates. In this phase achieve this TPP funded two small workshops that were held in Montreal, Canada (May 9, 2014) and London, UK (May 30, 2014). The workshops were organized by Jennifer Stoddart (former Federal Privacy Commissioner of Canada), Marty Abrams (from the Information Accountability Foundation), Jim Dempsey (Center for Democracy and Technology), and Fred Cate (Institute for Information Policy Research).
