Online privacy

For decades the OECD has been playing an important role in promoting respect for privacy as a fundamental value and a condition for the free flow of personal data across borders.

The OECD Guidelines on the Protection of Privacy and Transborder Flows of Personal Data are the cornerstone of OECD work on information security and privacy.

Connectivity for all

The Internet has been a lifeline during the COVID-19 pandemic, but without good connectivity, millions of people ultimately face greater exclusion.

The new OECD Recommendation on Broadband Connectivity provides a roadmap for policy makers and regulatory authorities to achieve high-quality connectivity and ensure equal access for all.

Going digital: Shaping policies, improving lives

How can we realise the immense promises of digital technologies and data for growth and well-being? 

Going Digital: Shaping Policies, Improving Lives identifies seven policy dimensions that allow governments - together with firms, citizens and stakeholders - to shape digital transformation to improve lives. 

It also highlights key opportunities, challenges and policies related to each dimension, offers new insights, evidence and analysis, and provides recommendations for better policies in the digital age.

Measuring digital transformation

Sound measurement is crucial for evidence-based policy making, but existing metrics and measurement tools struggle to keep up with the rapid pace of the digital transformation.

Measuring the Digital Transformation: A Roadmap for the Future provides new insights into the state of the digital transformation by mapping indicators across a range of areas against current policy issues. In so doing, it identifies gaps in the current measurement framework and sets out a forward-looking roadmap. The goal is to expand the evidence base as a means to lay the ground for more robust growth and well-being policies in the digital era.
