techUK comments on new EU-US Privacy Shield

 

Commenting on today's EU Commission and United States agreement on new framework for transatlantic data flows: EU-US Privacy Shield, Antony Walker, Deputy CEO at techUK, commented:

“Today’s announcement of a new deal for EU –US data transfers is extremely important. The European Commission and US Administration must now show total commitment to implementing this agreement (the EU-US Privacy Shield) and getting trans-Atlantic data flows back onto a secure and stable legal footing.

"Businesses large and small across Europe need reliable and affordable legal mechanisms to enable the data transfers that underpin their operations and ability to serve customers.

"The fact that EU and US negotiators have worked day and night for several months to secure this agreement reflects how important transatlantic data flows are to the global digital economy.

"Data Protection Authorities across Europe must play a constructive role in supporting this new agreement. It is essential that they allow time for this agreement to work and refrain from further regulatory action on other transfer mechanisms.”

Antony has been quoted by the Guardian and BBC News Online.
