The Snowden Fallout: New EU Demands, Questions for U.S. Service Providers and How to Respond

Broadcast Date: Thursday, September 12, 2013
1 - 2:30 p.m. EDT
Despite a history of disagreements over privacy issues at the government level, European and U.S. businesses have largely enjoyed mutually beneficial working relationships with regards to personal data processing. The collaborations mostly recognize strengths on both sides of the Atlantic: U.S. technological leadership—including pragmatic approaches to privacy and security issues such as the Safe Harbor and Model Clauses mechanisms—and, in Europe, overall appreciation for a more conservative human rights approach to privacy. European companies have in large part continued to share personal data with their U.S. service providers despite frequent cyber rattling coming from EU-based privacy officials.
But Edward Snowden’s revelation about NSA surveillance activities have shaken this balance, requiring American companies to face a barrage of questions and doubts from their European customers regarding the security and privacy of personal data. Join our panel of experts as they outline demands recently made of U.S. service providers and gain practical guidance on how to meet these concerns.
