The European Court of Justice recently declared invalid a 2000 “Safe Harbour” agreement between the European Union and the US that allowed US companies to transfer data in huge quantities to their US servers. With this agreement now invalid, many companies will have to rethink the way they handle personal data related to users, employees, and customers. More than 4000 US-based corporations are directly affected.

Dr Dennis Voigt, an EU data privacy lawyer from Melchers, Frankfurt (a fellow IALF member) recently travelled to Oregon and Washington to speak on this regulatory change.  Dr Voigt has very kindly shared his presentation, which is accessible through the links below.
