European Privacy Law

As innovative technologies emerge with new, sophisticated data collection capabilities, protecting users’ privacy and ensuring security becomes increasingly important. CDT works to develop privacy safeguards for consumers through a combination of legal and technical measures and best practices. In May of 2018, the European Union adopted the General Data Protection Regulation, which is a driving force in the global debate on privacy. Additional areas of focus for CDT include the Right to Be Forgotten, Pseudonymous Data, and the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield agreement.
