Digital Latam

We open the March 2021 edition of Digital Latam by welcoming Mr. Allan Ruiz, former COMTELCA SG and Costa Rica’s ICT Deputy Minister, to our team. In this edition, Allan gives his take on how Central America can boost connectivity and advance digital transformation. Also, in our latest interview, Antonio García Zaballos, Lead Specialist on Telecommunications in the Competitiveness and Innovation Division of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), shares his insight on the circumstances faced by Latam in 2020, in terms of digital development, and looks ahead to what the future for the region entails. Besides, our specialists provide their perspectives on data developments in the region, including the establishment of Brazil’s National Data Protection Authority (ANPD) and the adoption of Convention 108+ in Latin America, which could raise regional data protection standards to GDPR levels.

In this issue, we focus on:

  • Interview with Antonio García Zaballos
  • Central America and the promise of a digital future
  • Data Protection Developments in Latin America – Convention 108+
