The annual ICT4D Conferences have proven to be an invaluable opportunity for NGOs, private sector organizations, universities, governmental agencies and foundations to share their experience in using ICT to increase the impact of development programs and to learn from each other.  In 2016, 715 individuals from 76 countries and 301 private sector and public sector and civil society explored the ways to harness the full power of digital solutions to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.  Our thanks to Accenture, Catholic Relief Services, Esri, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, iMerit Technology Services, Inmarsat, IS Solutions, Making All Voices Count, Mercy Corps, Microsoft, NetHope, Oxfam, Pandexio, Qualcom Wireless Reach, RTI International, SimbaNet and World Vision for making that possible.

Do you find data management and protection challenges daunting? Want to comply with data protection principles but don't know where to start? Find policies delightful but wonder what you can do today? Come explore the Electronic Cash Transfer Learning Action Network's (ELAN's) Data Management and Protection Starter Kit. Learn what the kit contains and how it can help field staff understand and take first steps toward responsibly managing data. The starter kit includes practical guidance on assessing data risks, minimizing data collection, understanding KYC requirements, registering beneficiaries, understanding encryption, sharing data and de-identification and disposal.
The session will focus on field data management challenges and supporting teams to take first steps toward improving data practices and it will offer participants the chance to share their learning in this area. We'll also take your feedback about if you think it could use some improvements.
Note: The starter kit was created with electronic cash transfer programs in mind, but it may be useful to other programs.
