On Tuesday, the European Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce jointly announced a new data-transfer framework, the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield, to replace the invalidated Safe Harbor agreement. The Privacy Shield includes a new Federal ombudsman to oversee intelligence access to EU citizen data, a multi-step complaint resolution mechanism for EU citizens, and a number of other new provisions. But what does it mean for European and American companies that just want to transfer data while complying with the law? What are the next steps for the new framework and the role of the Article 29 Working Party, the European Parliament, and the U.S. administration? Join IAPP VP of Research and Education Omer Tene as he interviews a panel of experts analyzing the new agreement and talking about practical steps international organizations should be taking as the details fall into place.
