Webinar - The Privacy Shield: What Does it Mean for Your Business?

October 13, 2016 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM


Hear a panel of privacy experts discuss the Privacy Shield, a new framework for personal data transfers from the European Union to the United States. The subject of intense negotiations between the EU and US in the aftermath of the Snowden disclosures, the Privacy Shield is intended to offer legal certainty and a streamlined method for cross-border transfers between the EU and the US. But what are the practical considerations for companies? 

The webinar will focus on:

  • Pros and cons of the Privacy Shield in comparison to other cross-border transfer mechanisms
  • How the Privacy Shield impacts vendor relationships
  • How to self-certify to the Privacy Shield
  • Benefits of early participation
  • Oversight and enforcement

A partner in Goodwin’s Business Litigation Group, a member of its Privacy & Cybersecurity Practice, and former Chief Privacy Officer for the Department of Homeland Security, will be a panelist. Joining her, will be President & CEO of the Center for Democracy & Technology, Nuala O'Connor. Nuala has experience in both the public and private sectors, including serving as the Chief Privacy Officer for DHS and as the Global Privacy Leader at General Electric.

The panel will be moderated by a Goodwin partner and chair of the firm's Business Litigation and Privacy & Cybersecurity practices.
