Opportunités de carrière : Remote Working - International Consultancy - Beneficiary Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) (140621)
WFP seeks candidates of the highest integrity and professionalism who share our humanitarian principles.
Selection of staff is made on a competitive basis, and we are committed to promoting diversity and gender balance.
The United Nations World Food Programme is the world's largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. The mission of WFP is to help the world achieve Zero Hunger in our lifetimes. Every day, WFP works worldwide to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need.
SCOPE is WFP’s beneficiary and transfer management platform. The system was established in 2012 to address the need of having one corporate solution to manage beneficiary information and the delivery of assistance. In Sudan, WFP began rolling out the system in 2015 and there are currently 2.5 million beneficiaries (700,000 families) registered in the country. WFP is currently scaling up its registration and digitalisation effort to reach 6 million beneficiaries by 2022.
Managing personal data and identity is sensitive, as misuse of that data may cause harm to the people WFP seeks to assist. Protecting personal data is therefore about protecting people’s life, dignity and integrity. The Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) is a tool from the WFP Data Protection and Privacy corporate guidance launched in 2017. In the era of massive cybersecurity threats and facing the exponential increase of caseload and personal data collected, a PIA primary objective is to analyse the risks and provide good practices and standards to Country offices regarding the collection, storage and the sharing of personal and sensitive data. Ultimately, a PIA is a tool to provide management with the necessary information to make informed decisions to meet operational needs while preventing data breach and misuse, which could otherwise harm WFP beneficiaries, operations and reputation.
Under the leadership of the Risk and Compliance Advisor in WFP Sudan in close coordination with the Regional and HQ Humanitarian advisors (Protection, AAP and Inclusion), the PIA Consultant will lead, develop and complete the Privacy Impact Assessments for:
• SCOPE beneficiary management system in Sudan, and the in-kind food distributions, cash and voucher transfers managed through it;
• WFP Complaints and Feedback Mechanism database in Sudan;

The position is for 2 months and it will be remotely based.
