The US-EU Trans-Atlantic Data Privacy Framework, announced in March of this year, is a new agreement governing trans-Atlantic data flows between the United States (US) and the European Union (EU) – specifically data flows from EU countries to the U.S. that contain personal information of EU residents. The new framework is intended to replace the previous Privacy Shield Framework, which the EU Court of Justice found did not provide adequate protection of privacy, as required by the General Data Protection Regulation and other law.

In this podcast, experts discuss whether the new Trans-Atlantic Data Privacy Framework effectively addresses the concerns of the EU Court of Justice providing for a solid legal basis for future Trans-Atlantic data transfers.
