Commission, Commerce Announce New EU-US Data Transfer Agreement

CSR Thoughts...

We’ve gone from a Safe Harbor to a Privacy Shield.  Today, the European Commission and the US Department of Commerce announced a new transatlantic data transfer agreement.  The past few months have been tense since Safe Harbor had been invalidated by the European Court of Justice.  While the agreement is not yet legally binding, it offers some positive news.  CSR will continue to monitor the situation to make sure that we have the latest updates.




After intense negotiations between senior EU and U.S. officials throughout the weekend and into this week, the European Commission announced Tuesday it has reached a new transatlantic data transfer agreement with the United States. The U.S. Department of Commerce later confirmed details in a conference call with reporters.
