What’s Next After Safe Harbor Talks?

Thursday, February 4, 2016 - 10:00 AM to Friday, February 5, 2016 - 10:59 AM

Earlier this week, European and American negotiators announced a new framework for transatlantic data flows, referred to as the “EU-US Privacy Shield,” which will supersede the old Safe Harbor framework declared invalid by the European Court of Justice in October 2015.  The new agreement outlines a new set of obligations for U.S. companies to protect the data of Europeans, additional enforcement and oversight by U.S. government regulators, and new complaint resolution mechanisms for European citizens.

ITIF will host a discussion with FTC Commissioner Julie Brill on Thursday, February 4, 2016, at 10:00 a.m. EST, to explore this new agreement, weigh the reactions of privacy regulators on both sides, and delve into challenges still ahead for Europe and the U.S. to promote transatlantic data flows.
