A Conversation on Privacy Shield with FTC Commissioner Brill

Today, details of the EU-US Privacy Shield agreement were released. While CDT is still reviewing the content of the agreement (we did comment on the initial announcement of a deal), our President & CEO Nuala O’Connor recently had the chance to sit down with FTC Commissioner Julie Brill to talk about the impact it would have on both consumers and businesses. Privacy Shield, which replaces the Safe Harbour agreement that was struck down by the EU Court of Justice, will regulate the corporate data flow from the EU to the US, and is intended to provide stronger privacy protections for EU citizens.

The full conversation between Nuala and Commissioner Brill is available as part of CDT’s podcast, Tech Talk.
