Data Protection & The Death Of The US Privacy Shield Panel Session
Many US businesses trading with Europe have been thrown into confusion by the court decision from the European CJEU about the legality of transferring personal data from the EU using the Privacy Shield. What options are now available, and what are the potential consequences of this judgement?
