Data Free Flow with Trust

DFFT is an international institution for discussing data distribution on a global scale. Its aim is to ensure the cross-border flow of data to solve business and social issues.


To achieve this, the international community needs trustworthy legal and voluntary frameworks, guidelines, standards, technologies, and transparent safeguarding measures.


Digital-Aided Design provides a trusted, standard framework that enables every government and organisation to address cross-border data flow challenges together.

Cross-Border Privacy Rules

The Global CBPR Forum was established via the 2022 Global CBPR Declaration. The Global CBPR Forum seeks to support the free flow of data by providing an interoperable mechanism for effective data protection and privacy globally.


At the core of the Forum’s work are the Global CBPR System and Global Privacy Recognition for Processors (PRP) System. These voluntary, accountability-based systems will allow organizations to demonstrate their compliance to internationally-recognised data protection and privacy standards thus facilitating the seamless transfer of data across borders.


Digital-Aided Design is a universal common language and digital engineering approach that all nations can use to understand and communicate their cross border data flows.
