At the IAPP Global Privacy Summit here in Washington yesterday, the FTC's Edith Ramirez and the CNIL's Isabelle Falque-Pierrotin faced reporter Jennifer Baker to address whether this whole Privacy Shield thing is really going to work and, more broadly, whether the EU and U.S. can find a way to play nicely and allow data transfers to continue between the continents. The consensus? It's a solid start. Falque-Pierrotin was tight-lipped over Article 29 Working Party deliberations on the framework, which are ongoing. She wouldn't say whether DPAs are happy about the Shield as it stands today. But she did say the Shield is a positive development and an opportunity for the European Commission to cooperate more closely with the FTC; an opportunity the commission relishes. Angelique Carson, CIPP/US, has the details for The Privacy Advisor.
