Commerce Secretary Announces Global CBPR Forum

Several nations collaborate to address global privacy.

Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo announced last week the establishment of the Global Cross Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) Forum. Canada, Japan, South Korea, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, and the United States are all participating in this forum and will work together to create privacy rules and a global privacy recognition system, facilitating the growth of a safe and trustworthy global data flow. 

“At the same time, the new Forum will facilitate trade and international data flows and promote global cooperation, building on our shared data privacy values while recognizing the differences in our domestic approaches to protecting data privacy,” stated Secretary Raimondo. “With this unique approach founded on creating practical compliance tools and based on cooperation, we can make the digital economy work for consumers and businesses of all sizes alike.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For wisdom for Secretary Raimondo as she collaborates with foreign trade officials.
  • For discernment for the international leaders participating in the privacy forum.
  • For the president and his administration to seek God’s direction as they set foreign policy.
