Frances McLeod: How to deal with the mess known as EU to U.S. data transfer law

Frances McLeod, a founding partner of Forensic Risk Alliance, is spending a lot of time helping clients deal with EU privacy and data protection issues.

I talked with her about the Safe Harbor (it's dead), the Privacy Shield, and the EU General Data Protection Regulation.

What about the UK under Brexit, now that it's out of the aforementioned GDRP?

And how do companies operating in the EU handle whistleblower information?

If all this confusion has been making your head hurt, like it has mine, spend 20 minutes listening to Frances. With her practical, experience-based approach, she makes it all surprisingly clear.

Here's the video:


Richard Bistrong is a contributing editor of the FCPA Blog and CEO of Front-Line Anti-Bribery LLC. In 2010 he pleaded guilty to a conspiracy to violate the FCPA and served fourteen-and-a-half months at a U.S. federal prison camp. He was named to Compliance Week's list of Top Minds in 2017 and was one of Ethisphere's 100 Most Influential in Business Ethics in 2015.

His popular real-life compliance training video, Behind the Bribe, produced in cooperation with Mastercard, was released in June.

Thank you Richard and Frances for the very informative discussion. One thing which is absolutely incorrect is the comment around why there is a strong data privacy regulations in Europe. Frances mentions that there is a lot of history around privacy rights and the Soviet Union, Eastern Europe and the Nazi era. The data privacy regulations started with the Deutsche Telekom case. I think it is a very very far reaching thought to link data privacy to the Soviet Union and Nazi era. and offending.
