Virtual Event: CDT Digital Privacy and Security Working Group Call on Schrems II
November 18, 2020
On July 16, the Court of Justice of the European Union ruled in the Schrems II case that the EU-US Privacy Shield provides insufficient protection against the US government's intelligence surveillance activities. The decision threatens to disrupt trans-Atlantic data flows that are essential to the operations of many US-based tech companies.
What additional steps, besides committing to Standard Contractual Clauses, can companies take in the short term in an effort to protect the rights of their users and preserve those data flows? What changes to US intelligence surveillance law and practice would satisfy the redress and proportionality concerns of the CJEU, without threatening the national security of the United States? BSA's Aaron Cooper joins the Center for Democracy & Technology’s Digital Privacy and Security Working Group's call on Schrems II: What Companies and the Government Should Do To Protect their Users' Rights and Transatlantic Data Flows.
