eco and EuroCloud are organising two panel discussions on WHOIS and the EU-US Privacy Shield:
- A Status Report on ICANN’s Attempt To Fix WHOIS: Will It Succeed?
On 17 May 2018, the ICANN Board adopted the proposed Temporary Specification for gTLD Registration Data. This is an interim measure to bring existing WHOIS obligations in line with requirements of the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This process triggered ICANN’s policy making body to decide what will replace that temporary solution long term, with a requirement to do it by 25 May 2018. ICANN’s policy making body put together a special “EPDP” expert policy working group to attempt to meet this timing requirement. Will the experts make the deadline? Come listen to us discuss whether the EPDP Team will accomplish its important mission, and find out what happens if they fail.
- Transatlantic Dialogue – The Future of EU-US Privacy Shield
EU-US Privacy Shield governs the protection of personal data transferred from a member state of the European Union to the United States. For the Internet economy on both sides of the Atlantic, a consensual and long-term data protection regime is the basis for any business model in which personal data is stored and processed across borders. However, the EU-US Privacy Shield has been criticized since its launch in 2016. In the United States, an alternative model to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is being discussed. The most relevant associations of the Internet Industry in Europe and the United States, eco and i2Coalition, and both have been leaders in making sure that digital trade is protected for their member companies. Their goals have been long-term legal certainty for companies, and effective regulation for the protection of personal data. Join both organizations in a discussion of how changes in privacy law are likely to affect the future of transtlatic digital trade.
