Privacy Shield Training Course

I have produced a new Privacy Shield training course that provides a short introduction to the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework.  Privacy Shield is an arrangement reached between the EU and US for companies to transfer data about EU citizens to the US.  Privacy Shield replaces the Safe Harbor Arrangement, which was invalidated in 2015 in the case of Schrems v. Data Protection Commissioner.

Similar to the Safe Harbor Arrangement, Privacy Shield consists of 7 principles, which remain largely the same.  The principles have been made stricter, especially the parts about accountability, redress, and enforcement.

The course is about 7 minutes long, and it discusses the purpose and origin of Privacy Shield and the key Privacy Shield principles:

  1. Notice
  2. Choice
  3. Accountability for Onward Transfer
  4. Security
  5. Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation
  6. Access
  7. Recourse, Enforcement, and Liability

The course also emphasizes the importance of complying with Privacy Shield and explains the consequences for failing to do so.

If you’re interested, you can see the course by submitting a request for an evaluation login.  Please use the form at the bottom of the Privacy Shield training course page.
