Julio C. V. Gomez

- I am Deputy Director for Electronic Commerce Regulation in the Mexican Ministry of the Economy.

In 2004, I obtained the master’s degree in Information and Communication Technology Law from the Norwegian Research Center for Computers and Law at the University of Oslo, Norway. Taking the master’s degree at the NRCCL is one of the most important and positive decisions I have ever made. It has helped me to understand the global situation in the ICT law field, and therefore also helped me to contribute to my country’s development in this area. I have to say that the real development of my career began after my wonderful year in Oslo.

Within the public service, I previously worked in Mexico City’s local government and in the former Ministry for the Environment, Natural Resources and Fishing.

In the private sector, I worked for internationally renowned law firms in the corporate and litigious areas.

I am currently working on subjects such as personal data protection and the regulation of spam. I have also worked on different issues related to information technologies and digital economy within the framework of the Program for the Development of the Software Industry (PROSOFT in Spanish), the North American Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP), the Latin American Integration Association (ALADI in Spanish) and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC).

I currently act as the Mexican Delegate to APEC’s Electronic Commerce Steering Group, and in that role, I work primarily with the implementation of the APEC privacy framework. I also coordinate efforts with the IT industry in internationally important legal matters such as trustmarks, the harmonization of local regulation related to IT development, electronic signatures and the e-crime initiative.

I have participated as speaker in several forums in Mexico and abroad.
