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, 750 individuals from 76 countries and 320 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.

Participants at this workshop will learn why digital privacy, safety and security are critical in development work today. Session facilitators will provide an overview of important terms and concepts in the field of data privacy and security and how certain practices can create greater risk for vulnerable groups and increase liability for organizations. Workshop attendees will learn about the importance of responsible data policies that protect and empower program participants, ways to reduce data-related risk for especially vulnerable populations such as girls and women, how responsible data policies affect program implementation at various levels, and why open data policies need to strike a balance with privacy policies. Workshop participants will leave with a better understanding of digital privacy, security, and safety and practical tools for developing ethical data policies and practices.
