SIIA, like many others in the tech industry, eagerly awaits a draft privacy bill from the Hill. We support a strong and comprehensive federal privacy law that is designed to prevent and remedy harms, gives consumers meaningful control and access to their personal data, and bars unreasonable data collection and use practices. As we have noted in many fora, how to achieve this will require many sensitive policy decisions, all of which Congress is uniquely poised to decide.

These regulations, formally known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), will make many changes from current EU regulations. Even with Brexit, the UK plans to implement the Regulation as well. The challenges can seem daunting, and the stakes are potentially high as the regulators can impose fines for non-compliance as high as 4% of global revenue.
On July 12, 2016, the European Commission adopted the EU-US Privacy Shield, the successor to the 2000 U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework. The Privacy Shield is a critical tool allowing U.S. companies to transfer personal data from Europe to the United States in a way which complies with European laws and regulations.
