Organisers: International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC)
Today, technological achievements are crucial for humanitarian organisations in order to establish connections and more effectively serve the people who need help and who are not always physically accessible. But using various digital platforms means creating an ‘information trail’ which is hard to control.
Experts from the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) will present the results of their study, titled ‘The problems of metadata in humanitarian activities: How not to harm the beneficiaries in the digital age’, and speak about the principles which the ICRC uses in its activities, as well as the actions it takes to protect the data of aid recipients.
Speaker: Marc Philippe Stoll, Head of Communication Policy and Strategy at the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Geneva.
