IMPORTANT INFORMATION: GDPR and the EU-US Privacy Shield

Posted on 30/07/2020 11:59:05

We have recently been made aware of the following case - https://ico.org.uk/about-the-ico/news-and-events/news-and-blogs/2020/07/updated-ico-statement-on-the-judgment-of-the-european-court-of-justice-in-the-schrems-ii-case/

 

The result of this is that it has implications for data transferred from the UK and Europe to countries, such as the United States. You may therefore need to carry out Risk Assessments and review any applications/services that you use which were previously covered by the Privacy Shield.  

 

Whilst further guidance will be issued in the near future by the ICO, you may wish to discuss this with your DPO (Data Protection Officer) in the meantime.
