Digital technologies are enabling a shift in how social protection systems are designed and implemented and benefits and services delivered. They have the potential to increase efficiency and effectiveness and improve transparency and inclusiveness of social protection programmes. However, it also carries risks and challenges to data protection and privacy, once these programmes collect, store and process substantial amounts of personal data that can be partially sensitive.

Implications are also seen on approaches that link social protection to sustainable employment with an increased need to collect and process data cross-sectorally. This makes it indispensable to assess the specific risks for each of these programmes and define requirements for ensuring data protection and privacy.

Against this background, the webinar aimed at discussing and raising awareness on key issues around data protection for social protection – as well as its implications for approaches that link social protection to sustainable employment.
