The International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners has launched a new logo and a new name: Global Privacy Assembly (GPA).

Building on the Conference 40-year history, the new logo and name represent the evolution of the conference and the current work to modernize it, including a new policy strategy which sets out a clear vision for the organization.

Elizabeth Denham, GPA Chair and UK Information Commissioner, said: “Our new name feels hugely significant. Data protection and privacy is now too great an issue for this community to only have a role once a year. That’s why we took a step forward at last month’s conference in Tirana, when we agreed a set of strategic priorities that strengthen the group’s position as an effective and influential international forum. The new name reflects a group that supports one another year round, sharing knowledge and building stronger cooperation.”

Over the next few weeks, the Assembly’s visual identity will start to align around its new direction. You’ll see changes on the website, social media and on stationery. It’s an evolution of our 40-year-old history. It’s a Global Privacy Assembly of data protection and privacy commissioners.
