Since the Safe Harbor framework was invalidated in October
2015, multinational organizations have been scrambling to find alternative
legal mechanisms for moving employee and customer data from Europe to the U.S.
On July 12, 2016, the European Commission formally adopted the EU-U.S. Privacy
Shield framework to meet this need, and beginning on August 1, 2016, companies
will be able to self-certify as members of the Privacy Shield through the
Commerce Department’s website. This webinar will explore the changing legal
landscape surrounding cross-border data transfers, describe key features of the
Privacy Shield framework for companies looking to certify, and provide an
overview of the enforcement risks for companies that handle EU data.
In this webinar, BakerHostetler Counsel, Melinda McLellan,
and Associate, Emily Fedeles, walk through what this change means for the
software industry and your company. Key takeaways:
