Privacy Shield Training


With the powerful new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), huge potential fines are looming on the horizon for organizations without compliant privacy programs.

The GDPR requires workforce privacy awarPrivacy Shield Trainingeness training.  So does the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework, the arrangement reached between the EU and US for companies that want to transfer data about EU citizens to the US.  The Privacy Shield replaces the Safe Harbor Arrangement, which was invalidated in 2015 in the case of Schrems v. Data Protection Commissioner.

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

This privacy training course (~7 mins) provides a brief introduction to the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework.  The course discusses the purpose and origin of Privacy Shield and the key Privacy Shield principles (Notice, Choice, Accountability for Onward Transfer, Security, Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation, Access, Recourse, Enforcement, and Liability).  The course also emphasizes the importance of complying with Privacy Shield and explains the consequences for failing to do so.

The course consists of a video and 4 quiz questions that test on and reinforce the lessons in the video.  The module can stand alone or can be snapped together with other topic segments.

    About TeachPrivacy and Our Training Philosophy

    Daniel Solove Privacy Awareness Training TeachPrivacy was founded by Professor Daniel J. Solove, the leading expert on privacy and data security law. He is deeply involved in the creation of all training programs because he believes that training works best when made by subject-matter experts and by people with extensive teaching experience.

    According to Professor Solove: “Great training isn’t about slickness or tricks. It is about teaching. The goal is to make people understand, care, and remember. Great training is made with genuine passion – to make people love training, it must be made with love. Excellent substance is essential. The material must be explained clearly, understandably, and concretely. The content must be short and to the point – and it must be engaging. Slickness and gimmicks can’t compensate for lackluster substance.”

    TeachPrivacy provides privacy awareness training, information security awareness training, phishing training, HIPAA training, FERPA training, PCI training, as well as training on many other privacy and security topics.

    Professor Solove is a law professor at George Washington University Law School.
