Galexia directors Chris Connolly and Peter van Dijk are the authors of a chapter in the new book Enforcing Privacy - Regulatory, Legal and Technical Approaches (published by Springer, April 2016). This is the first major book to focus on the enforcement of privacy, and contains chapters from many leading privacy experts, including key regulators, academics, consultants and politicians.

Chris Connolly and Peter van Dijk contributed the chapter on Enforcement and Reform of the EU-US Safe Harbor Agreement. The chapter includes a detailed analysis of every Safe Harbor enforcement action. It also includes a detailed history of attempts to reform the Safe Harbor agreement, culminating in the proposed EU-US Privacy Shield in 2016.

Galexia advises on options for the cross border transfer of personal data in compliance with global, regional and national data protection requirements. The enforcement of these arrangements is a key issue in data protection, and this book provides a unique insight into the diversity of legal and technical enforcement options that are in use today.
