Ibero-American Data Protection Network
The Ibero-American Data Protection Network (RIPD) emerged in connection with the agreement reached at the 2003 Ibero-American Data Protection Meeting (EIPD) in La Antigua, Guatemala, which was attended by representatives of 14 Ibero-American countries. The RIPD was set up from the beginning as an inclusive forum for the various stakeholders, in both the public and private sectors, to develop initiatives and projects related to the protection of personal data in Ibero-America. In mid-2014, the RIPD started collaborating in the activities of the EUROsociAL Programme. This relationship has deepened this year with the designation of the FIIAPP, in its role as the management entity for this Programme, as a member with Observer status in the RIPD.
