Companies engaged in cross-border trade encounter multiple challenges related to data privacy and security – not only do they face heightened levels of data security risk, but they also must juggle multiple regulatory requirements for use, transfer and sharing of personal data. Regulatory fragmentation creates uncertainty and raises compliance costs for businesses, slowing innovation and increasing regulatory burdens without meaningfully improving privacy protections.
Join us to hear about the global data security threat environment for companies engaged in trade as well as some recent initiatives to help facilitate cross-border data flows across different data privacy regimes. You will also hear from officials at the U.S. Department of Commerce Office of Digital Services Industries about the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework and the Global Cross Border Privacy Rules System, which will provide a solution of real interoperability between data privacy regimes while helping companies to navigate the complex global environment for cross-border data flows and privacy.
