US Privacy Shield Agreement Rejected By The EU

Privacy Shield is not robust enough

An agreement designed to protect EU citizens’ data in the US, dubbed the Privacy Shield, has been rejected on the grounds that it needs “significant improvements”. The European Data Protection Supervisor has warned that the data transfer pact was not “robust enough”, and that it didn’t meet the required need to protect EU data stored on US servers. The new system was meant to replace the old Safe Harbour agreement between the United States and the EU, after it was ruled ‘inadequate’ by the European Court of Justice in 2013, following Edward Snowden revealing the details of the NSA’s access to European citizens’ data. However, earlier this year, the EU and the US made an agreement for a new pact that make it easier for organisations to pass data, but would require written commitments ensuring EU data would not be used for mass surveillance.
