Program Number: 2652 Presenter: Carolyn Krampitz, Esq., David A. Zetoony, Esq.

Multinational companies and United States-based service providers have long struggled with transferring information from the European Union to the United States, and balancing legal compliance with practical need.

Note: The Privacy Shield after the Safe Harbor is also the subject of a recent program, EU-U.S. Data Transfer—Life after the Safe Harbor under the “Privacy Shield” (2605), available now on
