Jeter & Taylor Address Safe Harbor Framework

InsideCounsel
July 2014

Charlotte Privacy & Data Security Senior Counsel Todd Taylor and Charlotte Litigation Counsel Breana Jeter were published in InsideCounsel on July 17.  Their piece “EU-U.S. Safe Harbor agreement heading for troubled water?” discusses the growing perception in Europe that U.S. enforcement of data privacy laws has been lax.  It rounded out a three-column series on data security.

Although U.S. media coverage of the Edward Snowden leaks regarding the National Security Agency’s PRISM program has waned in recent months, the issue remains a hot topic in the European Union (EU). Of particular interest to the EU is whether or not to extend its 14-year old Safe Harbor Framework arrangement with the U.S. permitting the transfer of personal data to the U.S. from the EU. If your company either has a presence in the EU or intends to have a presence there, this issue should be on your radar.

The first article of the InsideCounsel series, The latest FTC enforcement actions, and how to avoid one of your own, was authored by Jeter and Privacy & Data Security Member Karin McGinnis and published on April 18.  The second article in the series, “3 data security best practices learned from FTC enforcement actions,” was authored by Jeter and Taylor and published on June 2.
