European Union

FPF Advisory Board Member, Cameron F. Kerry, Senior Counsel, Sidley Austin LLP, and Maarten Meulenbelt, Partner, Sidley Austin LLP, published Privacy Shield: Essentially Equivalent, on July 14, 2016. The paper discusses how the Privacy Shield fulfills EU legal requirements. The authors explain:

“The Privacy Shield requirements far surpass those under Safe Harbour and ensure that EU residents whose data is transferred to the US receive protection essentially equivalent to what they receive in the EU.”
