The White House Fully Unveils Privacy-Shield's Replacement: Overview And Next Steps

Although the European Union (EU) and the United States (U.S.) enjoy a close economic relationship, differences in the two jurisdictions’ approaches to data protections have necessitated the creation of several legal frameworks for transferring data between the EU and the U.S. In 2016, the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield entered into force, acting as one such legal mechanism for transfers. However, in July 2020, The European Court of Justice (ECJ) struck down the Privacy Shield framework for granting inadequate protections as required under EU law, making it difficult for businesses to make legal data transfers between the two jurisdictions; this decision has become known as Schrems II. The EU and U.S. began negotiating a replacement framework, which was preliminarily announced in March of 2022. Now, the White House has issued an Executive Order On Enhancing Safeguards For United States Signals Intelligence Activities, and thus fully unveiled the content of the new EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework. Here’s what you need to know about this new framework and what comes next:
