The High Level Contact Group (HLCG), composed of senior officials from the European Commission, the European Council Presidency, Departments of Homeland Security, Justice and State, was formed in late 2006 to start discussions on data privacy in the exchange of information for law enforcement purposes. HLCG efforts were part of a wider reflection between the European Union (EU) and the United States on how best to prevent and fight terrorism and serious transnational crime.
