The digital revolution and connected digital transformation have the potential to benefit social protection systems, but they also raise concerns about data privacy and protection. Low and middle-income countries, where social protection programs primarily target vulnerable populations through non-contributory schemes, face challenges in complying with data protection and privacy standards. To address these issues, an Implementation Guideline is being developed to support social protection practitioners in these countries. The webinar showcased international practices and principles of data protection in social protection and provided insights into the forthcoming Implementation Guideline. The country case of Indonesia was discussed, where the government is in the process of passing a comprehensive national law on personal data protection. Experts and stakeholders from Indonesia discussed the importance of privacy and data protection for vulnerable populations and the application of the Guideline in the Indonesian context, exploring strengths, opportunities, challenges, and risks.
