    Revision of the 1995 EU Privacy Directive - Implications for Business

     
    The keystone of EU privacy legislation - the 1995 Privacy Directive - is undergoing a major revision that could have significant impact on businesses and consumers alike. On June 10, AmCham's IT, New Media & Privacy Committee is organizing a discussion with Florence Raynal, Head of International and European services at the French Data Protection Authority (CNIL), and with Karim Antonio Lesina, Executive Director, EMEA Government Affairs at AT&T, on the risks and opportunities presented by the revision:   
     
    streamlining regulatory filing requirements;  
    easing international data transfers;  
    simplifying conflicts of laws analysis;  
    enhancing consumer rights and consent requirements.
