The Global Privacy Enforcement Network has released its 2015 annual report, documenting a year of cooperation among national data protection authorities, increased participation, and the group’s goals for 2016. GPEN has now grown from the initial collection of 13 DPAs in 2010 to 59 participating enforcement authorities in 2015, representing 43 jurisdictions. Last year’s activities include a sweep of 1,500 apps and websites targeted toward children, in which 29 authorities participated, the creation of the information-sharing system GPEN Alert, and 18 conference calls in the Atlantic and Pacific regions for collaborative purposes. The plans for the coming year include increasing participation from African, Asian and South American authorities, another annual sweep, and an enforcement survey to help with DPA planning.
