EU to Introduce Data-Sharing Measures With US in Weeks
Computer Weekly, November 4, 2020
By Bill Goodwin
The European Commission (EC) will issue updated legal contacts that will outline how companies and businesses can share data with the US – without breaching European Union (EU) privacy laws – within weeks. The move is designed to give legal clarity to European organisations following advice from regulators that they should conduct detailed privacy assessments before they share personal data with the US.
Thomas Boué, director-general of policy for the Business Software Alliance (BSA), a trade body for technology companies, told the seminar that the commission’s “toolbox methodology” would be an important step forward.
“It has to be done on a case-by-case basis. We won’t be able to have one solution, one thing that is going to work. If that is what we are looking for, I think you will be disappointed,” he said.
