At the Trinidad and Tobago Internet Governance Forum (TTIGF) 2019, we asked the question whether it is time for us to consider a Caribbean Perspective on how we address our own privacy and trust issues through a similar engine in the region called the Caribbean Data Protection Regulation (CDPR).
In 2020 we gathered knowledgeable and insightful presenters from Trinidad and Tobago, the region (Barbados) and internationally (Canada) to share an update on what has occurred since TTIGF 2019.
