IAPP Global Privacy Summit 2010 – Hot Topics : Robert Rothman on the New EU Controller-to-Processor Model Clauses

At the recent IAPP Global Privacy Summit in Washington, D.C., many hot topics were addressed:

Privacy by Design, Behavioral Advertising, the new EU Cookie Consent Law, the Smart Power Grid, the Cloud, Web 2.0, the new EU Model Clause Agreements, Controllers, Processors and Sub-Processors, the recent Google convictions, to name just a few.

I interviewed a few prominent privacy professionals, attending and/or presenting at the summit on some of the important issues of the day.

Robert Rothman, President of Privacy Associates International, (PAI ), is an expert in Cross Border Data Transfers.

The EU Commission Decision of February 5, 2010, contains new rules on standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data from EU countries to processors established in third ( non-EU , and non- “adequate” )  countries. This decision comes into effect on May 15, 2010.

I asked Robert Rothman to explain the changes in the model clauses.
