Galexia article about Implementation of the new EU-US Privacy Shield - 21 March 2016
Galexia has published an article on the proposed EU-US Privacy Shield, which is set to replace the former Safe Harbor as the key mechanism for the transfer of personal data from the European Union to the United States.
The draft Privacy Shield adequacy decision by the European Commission is yet to be formalised - the commission must first seek the opinion of the influential Article 29 Working party. However, it is almost certain that the Privacy Shield will be implemented in some form in the near future.
The former Safe Harbor framework was the subject of extensive research and analysis by Galexia, including a major report in 2008 followed by ongoing monitoring and the submission of evidence and reports to the EU and US authorities.
How does the proposed Privacy Shield compare to the Safe Harbor?
