Advanced (International) Privacy and Data Protection
Full course description
The course builds upon the knowledge acquired in the course ‘EU privacy and data protection fundamentals’ by addressing pressing privacy and data protection questions more in depth and by focusing on issues of global relevance, relevant for multinational companies and international organisations. The fundamental international data protection principles (i.e. Openness, Collection Limitation, Purpose Specification, Use Limitation, Security, Data Quality, Access and Correction, Accountability) will be explained also making reference to their application in privacy systems outside the European Union (e.g. systems belonging to APEC, African systems etc.). International instruments such as Privacy Shield, Umbrella Agreement, Binding Corporate Rules, Agreements on Passenger Name Records (PNR) and Terrorist Finance Tracking Programme (TFTP) are put forward for a detailed discussion. Moreover, the course also covers the essentials of US privacy law (for example US Privacy Act, Clarifying Lawful Overseas Use of Data “CLOUD” etc.) and the related case law of US courts that is relevant for global compliance of multinational companies.
