About the Speech:

Ms Brill, who was at the forefront of negotiations of the EU/US Privacy Shield, addressed members on her view of the impact of the Privacy Shield on the EU in the future. She argued that decisions on the proposed Privacy Shield agreement, which will replace the Safe Harbour agreement on data protection will have sweeping implications for regulators, businesses and consumers all over the world. She contended that the adoption of the robust consumer safeguards and clear guidelines for businesses in the Privacy Shield, will bring about a powerful new mechanism for ensuring that the flow of data respects the privacy of European citizens. 


About the Speaker:

Julie Brill recently became a partner at Hogan Lovells law firm. Prior to her appointment, Ms Brill worked as the Commissioner of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. While at the FTC, Ms Brill was at the forefront of the Privacy Shield negotiations between the U.S. and the EU. She was also one of the key U.S. regulators on advertising law, including ad tech, native advertising and other cutting-edge ad issues. Ms Brill was the Senior Deputy Attorney General and Chief of Consumer Protection and Antitrust for the North Carolina Department of Justice. Ms Brill also taught at Colombia Law School.
