This event is produced by the FACC’s “Tech, Media & Entertainment” Task Force. A networking reception will follow, featuring wine and hors d’oeuvres.

This panel will:

  • Cover the latest developments in relation to the new Privacy Shield between the U.S. and the E.U.
  • Review the legal and cultural differences between the E.U. and U.S. frameworks for data protection.
  • Examine the perspectives of U.S. public authorities on the need for and means of access to Europeans’ personal data for U.S. national security purposes.
