EU-US Cross-Border Transfers, Privacy Shield, Model Clauses, and Binding Corporate Rules

September 1, 2016

Multinational companies and United States-based service providers face a variety of legal and practical issues regarding transferring information from the European Union to the United States. Though the approval of the Privacy Shield has provided a temporary period of stability, uncertainty remains regarding the program’s ability to survive legal challenges.

Join Washington and Boulder Partner David Zetoony and Hamburg Associate Carolyn Krampitz for a one-hour webcast Sept. 9 at 12 p.m. as they discuss EU-US cross-border information transfers and the issues that current methods of transfer face. Topics will include legal and regulatory issues involved with transferring information, the Privacy Shield, standard model clauses and binding corporate rules.

Zetoony is the leader of Bryan Cave’s Data Privacy & Security Team. He has extensive experience advising clients on how to comply with the advertising and data privacy rules and regulations of the Federal Trade Commission. He is an International Association of Privacy Professionals member. Zetoony sits on the ABA Section of Antitrust Law’s Private Advertising Litigation Committee and the ABA Section of Antitrust Law’s Healthcare and Pharmaceutical Committee. He frequently speaks and writes on data security and privacy issues.
Krampitz’s practice focuses on cross-border international trade and compliance law, including export controls and economic sanctions. She advises public and private companies on how to develop corporate trade compliance and training programs when dealing with trans-border business issues in Germany and the European Union (EU), as well as the analysis, optimization and support of implementing processes according to the national legal requirements.
