Privacy Shield: The New Data Transfer Agreement

Safe Harbour, the data protection principle set up to allow unhindered data transfer between the European Union (EU) and the United States (US), was ruled invalid in October 2015. In February 2016, Privacy Shield was announced as its replacement, implemented to offer clarity and security for businesses worried about data transfers between the European Economic Area (EEA) and the US. But there’s still confusion and ambiguity as to what Privacy Shield entails. Does Privacy Shield solve the problems highlighted by Safe Harbour’s invalidation? Can businesses trust Privacy Shield to guarantee the safety of their data overseas – or does the uncertainty and ambiguity that Safe Harbour was initially criticised for still persist? Download our whitepaper for insight into how the new agreement and upcoming EU regulations impact upon your business.
