At the end of each month we’ll compile a list featuring some of the most informative and interesting privacy blog posts to let you know what topics are driving the privacy agenda this month.

Privacy

The big story in privacy this month was the ruling by the Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU) that the current U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Program is no longer a valid method for ensuring adequacy under EU Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC for international data transfers. We covered this topic in a webinar and a Q&A sheet. Check out the list below to see what we covered on the blog this month:

 

Next Steps Following the EU Court of Justice Ruling on U.S.-EU Safe Harbor

This significant change in data protection law removes an established data transfer compliance mechanism that has been in place since 2000 and relied on by more than 4,000 U.S. companies. This ruling causes a period of uncertainly for businesses until the Department of Commerce and the European Commission can agree and put a new U.S.-EU Safe Harbor framework in place.
