As we meet here at P.S.R., the Privacy Shield is undergoing its second annual review. As privacy and security professionals, we’re all understandably a little concerned about the future of effective data-transfer mechanisms between the EU and the U.S. On July 5, the European Parliament recommended by way of a non-binding resolution from its Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs that the Commission suspend the EU/U.S. Privacy Shield on Sept. 1 unless and until all defined corrective actions are taken by the U.S. Department of Commerce. Luckily, that didn’t happen. In a recent article for The Privacy Advisor, however, Sholem Prasow, Stephan Grynwajc, Ariel Silverstone and John Wunderlich write that U.S. companies currently using the mechanism for data transfers shouldn’t worry; it’s not going anywhere. Read more on their predictions at the “Read More” link, and get real-time insight on the topic at 10:30 a.m. this morning with the “Privacy Shield at Age 2” breakout session.
