Save the Date - Safe Harbor/Cross Border Data Transfer Conference in Washington

If you have cross-border privacy issues as part of your portfolio, you should mark your calendar for November 16th. The Department of Commerce has just announced that the 2009 International Conference on Cross Border Data Flows, Data Protection and Privacy will be held on that date in Washington.


“Cross the Divide: Successfully Navigating Safe Harbor” will include discussions of issues such as

• progress on the Safe Harbor framework;
• changes in the binding corporate rules approval process;
• new privacy compliance paradigms;
• sharing data across borders during pandemics;
• privacy management in social networks;
• behavioral advertising in cloud computing; and
• civil litigation e-discovery.
The Conference will be hosted by the Department of Commerce, with the cooperation of the European Commission and the Article 29 Working Party on Data Protection, made up of data protection officials from each of the European Union Member States.
