Event description

Description

Join WTC San Diego and partners on January 24 for a roundtable discussion on data protection and privacy regulation.

Beginning in May 2018, virtually all U.S. exporters to Europe will need to be compliant with new EU data privacy legislation. Re­gardless of the company, industry or sales market, there will be new requirements and stiff fines for companies in the case of non-compliance. Enter the EU-Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework a mechanism that provides companies on both sides of the Atlantic a way to comply with data protection requirements when transferring personal data in support of transatlantic commerce.

Additionally, Asia-Pacifc Economic Cooperation (APEC) released its Privacy Framework and developed the APEC Cross-Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) System a mechanism that helps bridge privacy regulation differences by providing a single framework for the exchange of personal information among participating economies in the APEC region

At this roundtable, Nasreen Djouini, Policy Advisor at the U.S. Department of Commerce, will discuss:

  • Important developments in the EU’s data transfer regimes, including legal challenges, adequacy determination, and the General Data Protection Regime
  • Privacy Shield Framework - how to self-certify and comply with the requirements
  • CBPR rules, regulations and how to apply for a certification

Attendance for the roundtable is offered at a first-come, first-serve basis due to limited capacity. If there is overwhelming interest, other opportunities will be explored.
