More safeguards in revamped EU data transfer tools, EU justice chief says
The European Commission will on Friday adopt revamped data transfer tools with more legal and privacy safeguards to allow companies to transfer Europeans’ data securely around the world, the EU executive’s justice chief said on Wednesday.
The EU and the United States are now in talks to resolve the legal limbo facing thousands of companies, which is not ended by the separate agreement on Standard contractual clauses (SCCs).
Justice Commissioner Didier Reynders said a deal would have to acknowledge the enforcement of an individual’s rights, giving Europeans’ administrative redress to a U.S. court for data breaches.
