Best Practice Forum on

Data and New Technologies in an Internet Context

 

The IGF 2020 Best Practice Forum on Data and New Technologies in an Internet Context intends to establish a dialogue on how users' data is collected, analyzed and used and best practices to ensure that this data is used to bring benefit an not to harm users.  (MAG Adopted proposal)

Data & New Technologies Issues Card

The BPF developed a Data and New Technologies Issues Card . It maps potential issues and challenges related to the use of users’ data by new technologies, formulated as four sets of questions, to foster discussions among stakeholders.  ( online Issues Card here /  download .pdf version )

 

Call for case studies 

 

The BPF is looking for case studies and examples of how stakeholders address the challenges that emerge when collecting and using users' data. 

 

  • The BPF is looking for examples of applications (deployed or under development) that use users’ data. The BPF wants to understand what the pursued benefit is for the user(s) whose data is being used, and what measures are being taken to avoid that the collected data may be used to harm the user.  In other words, what measures are being taken to address challenges identified on the Data and New Technologies Issues Card .
  • The BPF is looking for examples of frameworks, guidelines and policies that address challenges identified on the Data and New Technologies Issues Card and aim to ensure that users can benefit and are not harmed. 

The BPF is interested in case studies related as well as unrelated to COVID-19.
