Short address for this page:
The WPISP develops public policy analysis and high level recommendations to help governments and other stakeholders ensure that security and privacy protection foster the development of the Internet economy. It gathers policy experts from OECD member and partner governments as well as business, civil society and the Internet technical community to share experience on better approaches to security and privacy in an open and globally interconnected environment. The WPISP reports to the Committee for Information, Computers and Communications Policy (ICCP) which itself reports to the OECD Council.
The work of the WPISP:
WPISP delegates come from various government bodies with an interest in the economic and social aspects of information security and privacy. Non-governmental stakeholders participate actively in the dialogue through the Business and Industry Advisory Committee to the OECD (BIAC), the Civil Society Information Society Advisory Council (CSISAC) and the Internet Technical Advisory Committee (ITAC). The WPISP has also established relationships with other international and regional organisations such as Council of Europe, Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation (APEC TEL and APEC ECSG), ENISA, the International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners, and the Global Privacy Enforcement Network (GPEN).
