The Impact on Staffing: GDPR and Privacy Shield; Privacy and Security for the US and EU.


The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union, and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU). It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU.

The GDPR aims primarily to give control back to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business

Privacy Shield is a framework developed by the EU, US and Swiss as a mechanism to comply with data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the EU and Switzerland to the US in support of transatlantic commerce. In the US, Privacy Shield is regulated by the Department of Commerce.

TargetCW, under the direction of the Global Privacy and Data Security Office, has gone to great lengths to comply with the various elements of GDPR and Privacy Shield. This site is dedicated to help workers, vendors and clients/prospects understand TargetCW's policy and procedures surrounding our overall security and data programs. If you have any detailed questions, we're always here. Privacy and Data Security is evolving and our policies and procedures will continue to evolve to protect our workers and clients with industry leading technology and practices.
