U.S. Safe Harbor for Data Transfers Declared Invalid

In the recent landmark decision Maximillian Schrems v Data Protection Commissioner C-362/14, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) has found the Safe Harbor framework, one of the most frequently used means of transferring data (including employee data) from the E.U. to the U.S., to be invalid.

To learn more, including the background to this decision, the impact it may have on international data transfers and practical guidance on what companies should do to avoid falling foul of E.U. data protection law, see our data protection team’s recent legal update on "FTC’s Safe Harbor for Data Transfers Declared Invalid".
