Webinar Presentation: Key Issues of Data Protection for Social Protection and Implications for Linking Social Protection to Sustainable Employment

Slide presentation of the webinar held on 27 April 2021

Digital technologies are enabling a major shift in how social protection systems are designed and implemented and benefits and services delivered. They can bring various advantages and have the potential to accelerate processes, reduce costs, increase efficiency and effectiveness, and improve transparency and inclusiveness of social protection programmes. However, new technologies also carry inherent challenges and risks. In particular, they may impose considerable challenges to 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.
