In this episode of Intercross the Podcast, we sit down with Massimo Marelli, Head of Data Protection Office for the ICRC. Massimo discusses how the ICRC approaches data protection and why this is a vital aspect of the ICRC’s humanitarian action in an increasingly digitally-connected world. He provides an overview of the ICRC’s data protection policies, such as the ICRC Rules on Personal Data Protection and the ICRC Policy on the Processing of Biometric Data, and highlights how the ICRC developed and implements these policies. Massimo also previews the new technologies and themes that will be examined in the updated Handbook on Data Protection in Humanitarian Action, which is set for release later this year (see here for the original version of the Handbook). Hosted by Austin Shangraw.
