A concise introduction to EU GDPR and EU-US Privacy Shield

This essential guide – the first of its kind on the market – is the ideal resource for anyone wanting a clear primer on the principles of data protection and their new obligations under the GDPR and the EU-US Privacy Shield.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) unifies data protection and simplifies the use of personal data across the EU.

It applies to every organization in the world that processes EU residents’ personal information.

US organizations that process EU residents' personal data will be able to comply with the GDPR via the EU-US Privacy Shield (the successor to the Safe Harbor framework), which permits international data transfers of EU data to US organizations that self-certify that they have met a number of requirements.

EU GDPR & EU-US Privacy Shield – A Pocket Guide provides an essential introduction to this new data protection law, explaining the Regulation and setting out the compliance obligations for US organizations in handling data of EU residents, including guidance on the EU-US Privacy Shield.
