The European Commission issued a press release yesterday along with draft proposals for the new Privacy Shield.

If put into place, the Privacy Shield will be one of the methods of  transferring personal information from Europe to organisations based in the USA without breaching the European data protection rules. These proposals will now be analysed by the European Data Protection watchdog and we will bring you updates as we get them.

The press release can be found here.

Probert Legal has particular expertise in this area and would be happy to talk to you about ensuring that your systems comply with the law and guidance in this area.
