    Transfer of personal data to the US deemed illegal - key steps that your organisation can take after Schrems II

    Many European organisations share data with organisations outside the EU, or rather the EEA, with data often being transferred to the US. Most of these organisations, 60% of them, relied on the Privacy Shield as a data transfer mechanism to the US. However, on July 16, 2020, the Court of Justice of the European Union invalidated the Privacy Shield, making the transfer of personal data to more than 5,500 US organisations (including the most used software tools) be in violation of the EU privacy law, the GDPR.

As these mechanisms are used for a large majority of international data transfers, this may in turn have a large impact on organisations around the globe. In preparation for the case, we analyse the road so far, and what the possible outcomes could mean for your organisation in regard to data privacy.
