“The Federal Trade Commission is aiming to bring more EU-U.S. Privacy Shield enforcement actions for significant violations of the cross-border data transfer program, the agency’s consumer protection chief said April 26.”

There are a group of cases the FTC is “looking at right now and they include” alleged substantive violations of the Privacy Shield program rules, Andrew Smith, director of the agency’s Bureau of Competition, said in an April 26 interview. It has been “a goal” of the FTC “to bring more” actions that show “substantial violations” of the Privacy Shield, he said.
