The European Court of Justice (ECJ) sent shockwaves through the privacy community last week. As Jonathan Armstrong explains in this podcast with Adam Turteltaub of the SCCE, it put an effective end to the Privacy Shield because of concerns about US government surveillance. As a result, what had been an essential element of compliant data transfers between the US and EU is no more.
Organizations relying on Privacy Shield must now look to standard contractual clauses and other measures for moving data. They may even want to revisit whether there are ways to work without transferring data outside of the EU at all.
Jonathan and Adam discuss these issues and others including developing consistent messaging for the staff, privacy due diligence of vendors, what impact the CJEU’s decision may have on a post-Brexit UK, and the possibility of dawn raids.
