The COVID-19 pandemic reminds us that this is an interconnected world. For those who have time on their hands, and want to gird themselves for some of the major global privacy policy issues that are likely to recur, the Third Edition of Cohen & Kropf’s “US Government Guide to Global Sharing of Personal Information,” is now out. You can order a digital copy or, if you prefer, buy the hardcopy from the International Association of Privacy Professionals. As one reviewer put it:

“Now, perhaps more than ever before, it is critical to understand how governments around the world protect the personal information they exchange with each other. . . .Cohen and Kropf’s guide walks readers through existing accords that govern government data sharing and the principles and history that underpin them. The combination of these two elements provides stakeholders seeking to understand these information flows or develop new frameworks to protect the toolkit they need. With immediate demands for protected information sharing, such as those driven by COVID-19, and near-term potential for data flow disruptions, along with the pending Court of Justice of the European Union case challenging standard contractual contracts, this guide could not be timelier.”
