Event Synopsis:
On October 6, 2015, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) invalidated the European Commission’s adequacy determination for the Safe Harbor Framework, creating an urgent need for a new transatlantic data transfer mechanism. The adoption of the EU-US Privacy Shield in July 2016 was a breakthrough for transatlantic data protection and cross-border data transfers between Europe and America. The agreement redefines how U.S-based participating businesses must collect and transfer personal data of EU citizens to the US and across the Atlantic.

Eight months after its adoption, The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of key thought leaders to provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the latest updates and issues surrounding the E.U-US Privacy Shield. In this two-hour live Webcast, speakers will help both EU and US companies understand the important aspects of this significant agreement. They will discuss the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will take effect in May 2018 and under which existing adequacy determinations, such as the Privacy Shield are grandfathered. They will also offer best practices in developing and implementing a privacy-compliance program.

Key topics include:

EU-US Privacy Shield Framework
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
Safe Harbor Vs. Privacy Shield
The Latest Updates and Issues on EU-US Privacy Shield

The Impacts of EU-US Privacy Shield in:

- EU Digital Economy
- US Businesses in the Europe
- Internet Data Travelling between EU and US
- General Economy of both countries
- New Requirements for Compliance
