International data flows are a key component of the digital trade that increasingly drives U.S. economic growth. However, American technology companies face challenges with our critical trading partners, especially because of concerns about how data might be accessed and used by U.S. intelligence and law enforcement authorities. Extending some of the privacy rights in the U.S. Privacy Act to European citizens is one step that the United States can take to reassure its trading partners and support the critical international data flows on which U.S. businesses rely.
The Judicial Redress Act of 2015 (S. 1600) would extend the U.S. Privacy Act to enable some foreign citizens to pursue civil remedies to ensure the accuracy of their information shared pursuant to an agreement between the U.S and their respective governments.
On Thursday, September 10, join us for lunch and a panel discussion about the Judicial Redress Act, with a particular focus on the remedies it offers and the impact it may have on transatlantic data flows. Complimentary lunch will be served.
