About Us

ICT companies increasingly face pressure by governments to act in ways that may impact the fundamental human rights of privacy and freedom of expression.  To help navigate those challenges, GNI does four key things:


Provides a framework for companies, rooted in international standards


Ensures accountability of ICT sector companies through independent assessment


Enables opportunities for policy engagement 

Creates shared learning opportunities across stakeholder boundaries
