Handbook on Data Protection in Humanitarian Action

This handbook by ICRC (2017) provides recommended minimum standards for the processing of personal data in relation to humanitarian action. The handbook is broken into two sections: (1) general considerations, and (2) specific processing situations and technologies.

These sections include data protection principles, the data protection impact assessment (DPIA) and process, international data sharing, and considerations in relation to drones, cash transfer programmes, mobile messaging apps and cloud services.
